OLD photographs which chart decades of history at a town primary school feature in an exhibition created by youngsters to mark a landmark date.

St Cuthbert's Primary School, in Crook, used to be attached to the convent of Our Lady Immaculate and Saint Cuthbert Roman Catholic Church, but moved into a new building ten years ago.

The Northern Echo:

To mark a decade on the new site, pupils took a look into the school's past.

They collected photographs, newspaper cuttings and history books from the school archives featuring royal visits, building work, class pictures and performances to go on display.

The Northern Echo:

They also brought in pictures of their parents and grandparents who had been pupils at the old school site or lived in the parish.

The exhibition, which is at St Cuthbert's Church, Church Hill, gives a glimpse of how the school, uniform, people and attitudes have changed.

The Northern Echo:

School caretaker Catherine Ringwood, who helped set up the exhibition, said: “The school has been built for over ten years and it’s a nice way to remember the church, parish and the school through the years.”

Parishioner Carol Brady said: “It's wonderful and brings back so many memories.

"Children can see how things have changed with time.”

The exhibition will run until Saturday, November 28. To view it when the church is closed, call 01388-762724 to arrange access.
