Soham Grammarians - Mr CC Copland, Woodwork

Soham Grammarian Summer 1941

One fine morning this term witnessed the appearance in the Assembly Hall of a fine new lectern, and on making enquiries we find that it is the work of Mr Copland and his pupils, who are to be warmly thanked for their beautiful artistry.

We also bid goodbye to Miss D. M. Godfrey, who so very kindly came to teach French until Mr. Riley's release from the Forces, to Miss M. E. Lawson, to Mr. C. C. Copland, who has done such admirable work as Woodwork Master during the past few years, to Miss M. Gimbert, the Head's Secretary, and to Mrs. Crick, the School Caretaker, who has been with us for the past 19 years.
