David Camps 60: I remember going on a School Trip to Coventry Cathedral, which was consecrated in May 1962. The trip was probably in 1962, but I cannot remember if it was before the school closed for the summer holidays in July, or in the new term which started in September. My main memories are of the extremely long queues, of an elderly lady who was extremely distraught at the destruction caused by German bombers during the war, and of some of us kids trying to kick the 1963 pennies out of the stone floor. A mention on the website might remind others of the trip.

Dave Hazelgrove 65: There was a visit to Italy in the Easter of 1967 for Forms 2A/Alpha, culminating in our presence in St Peter's Square on Easter Sunday for the Pope's Easter Address. The trip was led by Mr Sherrington and his family. We flew to Zurich and then caught a train to Rome. We visited Sorrento, Amalfi, Naples, Pompeii, Mt Vesuvius, Tivoli Gardens and Florence (to name but a few places). Train back to Geneva and flew home from there. I have slides of the trip - somewhere. Anecdotes available about a lemon tree, an orange and the Sorrento priesthood. [Editor - anything in the School Magazine?]
