Heritage Photos – Boat Building

Every so often we get a glimpse of the past and how things used to be. As we have celebrated our 60th Birthday as a school this year we have been lucky enough to meet many of the past pupils and staff from Priestlands School. One of those ex-pupils, Mr. Brian Bird, very kindly donated his photo album showing a boat building project he undertook at Priestlands as a pupil. I think this would have been during the late 1950’s or early 1960’s. I hope you enjoy the photos and the fashions as much as I do. I am not sure that ladder training was given such a high profile back then.
