PTA families helped promote the book - and ran a traditional hook-a-duck game too
Lots of people found family and friends in the book

In July 2009, the Hobby Horse Festival provided a wonderful opportunity for us to show the Dashwood Souvenir History book and ask the question: Are you in it? Former pupils seemed to be everywhere at the fair, and many had a look and located themselves, their friends or family members.

New memories also flooded out, including Jennifer Tustian’s recollection of a play in her final year: ‘The Little Imp’, in which she played a doll that came to life.

Pat and Dave Tompson recalled how they met in their teens, both having been at Dashwood but not at the same time!

    I went to Dashwood Rd school from 1949 until 1954. My father was a teacher at the school in those years. I would like to find old friends, Susan and Christopher Woodward. They lived with their parents at the Wheatsheaf Hotel
    I’ve lived in Australia since I was 15.
    My Dad was Bob Cox. Miss Tyrell and Amy Wyatt we’re teachers. I am now 76.
