I am really pleased to be on line at last, and would love to hear from any former class/school mates. Some of you may remember I lived in the off-licence opposite the school - what a claim to fame! I did get to the reunion and it was great to meet up with old friends, although sadly, not many people from my old class were there. It was a lovely afternoon, with a very happy atmosphere. Since then, I have been in regular contact with Geoff Gillon (whom I first contacted through his ad in the Ilford Recorder) and would like to thank both him and Pauline for all the hard work that they have done and still do. It is so interesting seeing more pieces of the W.T. history unfold. Looking forward to hearing from some of you, please

My thanks to Margaret Willes for putting me in touch with Miss Peacock and Miss Billington and to the latter for providing the programme for the school's opening ceremony in 1937 and a photo of the tree planting ceremony in 1952. Margaret Willes (see 3A 1956) keeps in touch with Miss Peacock, former head of the infants school.

I am at last on-line, just in time for the millennium! and have for the first time seen the Torbitt reunion site with much amazement and pleasure. I would love to have been there and hope I can make any future ones organised. I wish all my former primary school classmates much happiness. How did we all get to be such an age so fast? Thanks Geoff and Pauline for making this possible.
