Although it is believed that these photographs are from the Prizegiving of 1966, there is some uncertainty over this. The photographs from the early to mid-1960's were stored in a set of boxes, only one of which was labelled, and that seems to contain the photographs that relate to the box label: Prizegiving 1967. A number of sets of photographs were stored in the same boxes as sets that clearly related to other years and other events. By carefully studying elements within the photographs (the time of day of the event, members of staff and guests present, the appearance of particular students in a set that are known to be present in another set, the clothing of key individuals in each set etc), along with reference to the Principal's Log Book, it is felt that the photographs shown here, are most likely to be from one particular event: Prizegiving of 1966. There is a brief mention of a Prizegiving ceremony in the Principal's Log Book for March 1966, however its understatement does not appear to be in keeping with the much-larger scale event that seems to be depicted in these photographs.

If you recognise these photographs or any of the people depicted in them and can help with establishing with certainty the date of this event, we would be very pleased to hear from you.

The captions to this set are taken from the notes written on the backs of the original photographs.
