November 1923: News of Old Girls: Beatrice Buckley (1920) is still teaching  –  which apparently exhausts all her energies, so that she ‘has no news for the Magazine’; Lilian Buckley (1921) is living at Blackpool. We are glad to hear from her that she keeps a warm corner of her heart for ‘smoky Manchester’ still!

1 April 1931: The team for Lincoln City against Halifax Town on Good Friday: J. Maidment, Anderson, McConville, Savage, Young, Buckley, Cartwright, Whalley, Halliday, March and Lax.

July 1933: 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. Our successes were largely due to the excellent batting of Miller and the persistent bowling of Tuckwell, both topping the averages. 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. Three boys have been chosen to represent the West in the East v West match, namely Miller, Currie and Tuckwell. We hope that they will do well on the all-important day. The school this year has been represented by the following boys  –  Hunt, Johnson, Currie, Gray, Miller, Judd, Tuckwell, Finney, McGlashan, Littlefair, Allen, Paul, Mitchell, Buckley, Hay and Harbour;

‘The School Concert: About mid-February of this year the lower hall became the scene of queer happenings. Several furlongs of wood, miles of wire, and acres of canvas gradually took shape as a stage and scenery, with lighting effects complete, the whole reflecting great credit on the industry and ingenuity of those responsible. On February 17th the School Concert, for which this stage was the setting, took place, a matinee performance before a crowded and appreciative audience of parents and friends. In the afternoon all concerned gave a splendid performance and did their very best, but in the evening they did even better: the actors actually surpassed themselves, and surprised even those who knew how well they could do. It seems somewhat invidious to single out individuals for special notice when all were so good, but mention must be made of A. Macdonald’s competent and understanding representation of the “interpreter” in L’Anglais tel Qu’on le Parle, and in the same play H. Kohn made a most convincing (and attractive) young lady, while J. Brooks could scarcely have bettered his impersonation of the inspector. Douglas Henderson, Douglas Gear, Ernest Scott and Norman East also played their parts excellently. Although C. Johnson and K. Judd had been brought in at very short notice to fill vacancies caused by illness, their parts in A. A. Milne’s The Man in the Bowler Hat were adequately played, and the whole was almost professional in its competence. Alan McBain’s performance as John and Sandford as Mary deserve special mention, whilst Judge and Holsman who had lesser parts were excellent. Dennis Rainey found a part in Laying a Ghost entirely suited to his particular genius and he made the most of it. It is a question as to who enjoyed the play most – the audience or Dennis; at all events the gusto with which he played put the success of the play beyond question. R. Nall made a most impeccable professor (as the stage sees him), E. Dickson a suitably phlegmatic policeman, R. Buckley a very charming maid and Hookway a most competent butler. The Indian Club Swinging was extremely good, as was the singing of the choir. The perfect team-work displayed by the choir ensured a successful performance and Dennis Sabin’s work as accompanist was invaluable, as well as his assistance in training the choir. His brilliant playing in the two solos he gave was greatly appreciated. Altogether we have reason to congratulate ourselves on a very interesting concert, reflecting greatly on all those boys who did so much to ensure its success.’
