The video footage of the school and its events on YouTube were all extracted from a VHS video tape compilation loaned to me by John Blagden in Jan 2012.   The original videos were filmed and commentated by Doug Bartlett.   Sadly Doug is no longer with us.   His daughter Sarah Briscoe has granted permission for the films to be used on this site.   Thanks so much Doug and Sarah.

School Fête 13th July 1979 — Part I and II — Oh boy (girl) !
Some serious fun is being had here. It's time to be proud or time to be embarrassed. It was a nice day weather wise.

The video is in two parts, YouTube has a restriction on length of 15 mins runtime (Jan 2012). So rather than crop the 19 min original I have spilt it.
