St Peter's School, Portslade

1957 School Outing

By Alan Phillips

Was it to the Scouts camp?

Another Southdown Motor Services coach and another school outing, in 1957 I think. I cannot remember for certain where we went - although I've a feeling it might have been to the Scouts camp on the Henfield Road (A281) close to Newtimber.

Can you fill in some names?

I went to St Peters from 1957-9 but can't see myself on this photo. I remember Miss Lewis, she came to teach at the Knoll, unfortunately she suffered a case of extreme sun stroke and died. Connecting through the years the current Head is a long-term friend of mine.
