Old Novo visit

We recently welcomed Burland Jacob, Old Novo 1944-49, and his fellow Rotarians from Stanley Rotary Club.

They enjoyed a school tour by Peter Sloan and Emily Murphy, members of the senior prefect team, followed by lunch in the school dining hall. 

Later they joined an A Level history class and discussed topics such as post-war housing, changes through the decades, the decline of mining towns and British steel works, as well as the influence of politicians, including former Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher on today’s economic and social life.
