ACTOR David Wood will narrate a guide to the history of Chichester High School at a special day.
Former pupil David, who is also a playwright and author, has lent his voice to the fascinating audio visual presentation which will launch the event to mark the 90th anniversary of the foundation of Chichester High School for Boys.
He will take guests through the nine decades of the school’s history, tracing many events and developments that have made the school and its students so successful.
The celebration and reunion is being held by the Old Cicestrians Association, with the support of the current Chichester High School. It is open to all former students and staff of the high school for boys and the Lancastrian School and their partners.
A spokesman for the Old Cicestrians said: “This will be followed by the opportunity to view the extensive array of past photographs, memorabilia (and some video) celebrating the achievements of so many former students, school teams and the many extra curricular activities that made the school so popular and famous locally and nationally.
“Old Cicestrians Colin Snook will be displaying his recently created record of the 54 former CHSB students and staff who gave their lives in the Second World War.”
The celebration is being held at the school in Kingsham Road all day on October 20. Afternoon guided tours by students will include facilities such as the Chichester Gymnastics building, named after probably the school’s most famous old boy, astronaut Tim Peake, where youngsters will display their amazing talents. The combined cadet force will be seen in action and there will be the chance to visit the South Downs Planetarium and hear about its importance.
The cost of the day is £25. More details from: oldcicestrians.co.uk, email: CSHB90@oldcicestrians.co.uk or tel: 01243 784915.
