    I really enjoyed searching our moorefiled school boys and I think it is a great and fun way to learn about our school and the people who came to school our amazing school in the past years. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  3. I am glad that you enjoyed finding out about our “old boys”. I wonder what sorts of things the “old girls” did in the war time? Maybe they were nurses or farmers or factory workers – it would be nice to know! MrsP
