Were you at Shrigley in 1958? Did you arrive in September 1958? Were you on the staff or were you a pupil?
The photograph here is a Sodality photo with students of First and Second Year classes for the 1958-59 school year and we would love to see as many as possible of these together again at the Association Re-union in 2008. The outline timetable for the 2008 Reunion is now available HERE
small group has begun trying to identify all the people in the photo but more
are unidentified than can be named.
Fr. Bernard Parkes, Keith Dransfield, Bernard O'Neill and Joe Adams are members of the "1958 Fiftieth Re-union Group" and each appears on the photo. Can you spot them?
More importantly, can you spot yourself? If you know anyone on this photo we would love to hear from you. Are you the determinedly anonymous no. 56? Don't bother claiming to be no. 61.
Most important of all, will you come along to a Fiftieth Anniversary Re-union in 2008? Apart from Frs. Jerstice and Booth there are fifty eight people on this photo, could we recreate this photo fifty years after 1958? A slightly clearer photo is available here in a new window
organising group would like to invite everyone who was at Shrigley in
1958 to the Association's annual re-union in 2008. Before then we hope to be
able to name everyone in the group and to be able to contact them to issue a
personal warm invitation to join us.
