Staff, Past and Present – ‘Miss Ethel Lee is now at Bridlington High School, but we are glad to read in the following contribution to the Magazine that she has not lost her love for Whalley Range. ‘Rambling Recollections. W.R.H.S. 1915-21. “What fun we had, in spite of war-bread and carrot puddings! Even the first experience of November fog had its funny side, for never before had we known pedestrians going along Clevedon Road giving warning of approach by the loud beating of a dinner-gong! Spring brought the discovery that London Road Station is the gateway to the High Peak, and who can describe the magic of the moors in those days? No keepers to warn you off! We stood above the ‘Downfall’; every inch of Lyme was ours by explorers’ rights; and proudly from Windgather Rocks we surveyed the deep chasm of the Goyt. What good fellows they were – Staff or girls – to ramble with, and what an appreciative audience would listen on Monday morning to the tale of our week-end exploits! Perhaps to other ‘old girls’, as well as to myself, there is a specially unforgettable ‘feel’ about certain of these early memories: Miss Allen playing Tchaikovsky to a hall full of keenly attentive girls; Miss Harriet Fletcher, in navy frock with gold braid, speaking on Trafalgar Day; a meeting of the Institute Français at the Midland with Mlle Tessier (now of the Théâtre du Vieux Colombier) in Les Romanesques; the Hallé rendering L’Après-Midi d’un Faune; Miss Grant at Norden explaining ‘drift valleys’; the ‘Harvest Festival’ presided over by Miss Field. Three cheers for W.R.!”

Premier Cricket: We have played six matches, of which we have won 2 and lost 4. We have beaten the Ensham and Vauxhall, and lost to the Reay, Loughboro’, Peckham and Walworth.

Batting: Miller 51 runs 5 innings 10.2 average; Gray 20 runs 4 innings 5 average; Campbell 10 runs 2 innings 5 average; Currie 24 runs 5 innings 4.8 average. Bowling: Tuckwell has an average of 5.2 runs per wicket. Gray has an average of 6.6 runs per wicket.
