NORWOOD COLLEGE ANNUAL SCHOOL PICNIC

Page updated 21 December,2018





Under the title, School Notes, the school magazine The Rocket of November,1946, reported that,
"The Annual School Picnic was re-introduced this year after an interval of eight years, and it was approriate that this first post-war outing should traverse exactly the same route as the last one, held in 1938."
The next paragraph may or may not be describing the picnic:
"A crowded and happy day, despite the extremely poor weather, was spent in travelling to Bowness on Windermere, via Wensleydale, then to Morecambe where tea was provided, and finally home, calling for a short time at Settle."

Regarding the 1938 event could this have been the subject of the photograph below?
Note the sign board above the 'Prefects' Steps' on Tewit Well Avenue; the Leeds Road house, no.5, was not yet in Charlie's hands.

"School boys in an open-topped bus outside Norwood College in Harrogate c.1940. The school opened in May 1936 and closed in 1972. The headmaster was G.W.G.Cass. who, before taking up the post, was employed at Clifton House School in nearby Stray Road.."
