A SCHOOL in East Yorkshire is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, and former pupils and staff are invited to attend a workshop to share their memories of their time there.

Woldgate School in Pocklington opened its doors for the first time in 1958 as the secondary school for the town and surrounding villages.

Many thousands of pupils have passed through the school since then and the Pocklington and District Local History Group wants to share and record their stories.

The history group is staging a celebratory workshop in the school on Thursday, October 18 at 7.30pm.

The evening will begin with an archive film from the early days of the school.

It will be followed by asking all present to complete a memory card and exchange their memories of the school.

The history group is hoping everybody with a connection to the school during the last 6o years can join them, including former and current pupils, staff and parents, especially those from the school’s earlier years.

Jo Green, the group’s secretary, said three of the original staff are still around in Pocklington.
