Ken writes -
In the late 1950s and early 1960s there was an old scholars association that was very actively supported by Geoff Rowe. The primary role of the association was to provide activities and a regular weekly meeting place for ex-scholars as they first left school and those of us who stayed on over the years to help run it. We would meet for a pint or two at the Blackboy at the end of the evening. Besides running the regular weekly meeting activies, the association ran one or two reunion dances. I was involved in one in particular at the Angel in Edmonton.

It also had a quite active Drama group and put on several comedies that ran over three to four nights and were very well supported both by the school and the old scholars association. Possibly because I was mostly involved with back stage needs, I have long since forgetten the names of the plays and players except for the last one that I was associated with. On this occasion I was 'lent on' to take the lead role. I think the photograph includes almost all of the players in this particular comedy which was entitled "Widows are Dangerous".
