Students from 1977-1984 enjoyed a school reunion at Greenshaw on Saturday.
A group of former students who attended Greenshaw between the years of 1977 and 1984 took a trip down memory lane on Saturday 1st July.
The alumni were delighted to be joined by Mr Wagstaffe (Head of the English Department from 1973 to 1990) and Mrs Miller (a former Teacher of English). They all enjoyed a sunny afternoon at Greenshaw, where they had the opportunity to take a tour of the school and catch up with other students from their year group over a tasty barbecue and drinks provided by the Greenshaw catering team. One of the highlights was the dessert of butterscotch tart!
The school has changed a great deal over the years, with dramatic changes to the building in the past two years following the major expansion project at the school. The former students enjoyed finding their old tutor group rooms and the original 'woodwork' room, amongst others.
David Carman, one of the former students, welcomed the group and shared his memories of the school. He observed: "A lot of us grew up within a few hundred yards of Greenshaw and some still live close by. For many, this place will always be home, no matter how far away we roam. A part of that will be the friendships we made, the games we played and, of course, the school that we call our own."
Plans are now being made for a reunion event to celebrate Greenshaw's 50th birthday in 2018. If you are a former student or member of staff from Greenshaw High School, please register here to our alumni network (which is managed for us by Future First) and we will be in touch as soon as a date has been agreed.
