Fulford School memories sought to mark golden jubilee

MEMORIES of life from 50 years at Fulford School in York are needed for an exhibition as part of a day of anniversary celebrations later this month.
Fulford School is holding a Fulfifty Festival on Saturday, September 28, to celebrate its golden jubilee with guided tours of the school, a barbecue and photo displays of 50 years of school life as well as a guestbook to sign, but more photos are needed from across the decades to help fill some gaps.
Geography teacher Louise Butcher, who has taught at the school for 34 years, said: “We are missing photos from a chunk of people who left the school or who were taught here during the 1980s.
We have had a lot of photos submitted by former pupils and staff from other decades, but I think a lot of that age group have moved away and probably have young families now.
“They are probably very busy, but we’d love them to get in touch or send us their photos on Facebook or by email.”
The school has started a new era this week as new head teacher Lorna Savage took charge as the school’s first woman head and the fifth head in its history.
Ms Savage has taught at the school, which has 1,354 pupils, since 1996 and since 2007, she has been associate head teacher.
The former head teacher Steve Smith left in the summer to take retirement, having taken over in September 2001 from Keith Hayton, who had been at the school for nearly 23 years.
To make a contribution to the 50th anniversary celebrations contact the school by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and there is a Facebook page facebook.com/FulFiftyFestival for people to register their interest.
