Speech Day (1967)
First Speech Day, July 1996
Isaac Stamper, head of English and a key figure in the School's history, reports on the first school Speech Day which combined the presentation of prizes for the first two years of the School's physical existence. I squeaked in the lists with a 'library prize', which I won for writing up a 'botannical field trip' each member of our class was supposed to have undertaken. I was a rather dissident kind of chap in those days and for some reason I took against the idea of going into the field and collecting specimens, and therefore refused to go. So my mother and sister went out instead to collect the stuff, and I put together a presentation based on their efforts. I'm still at it, albeit electronically, as you can see.
