Editorial

 
After five years of silence here comes our first School Magazine.  Since the school opened in 1947 there has been no opportunity of blowing our own trumpets, and so pray silence for our first "magnum opus".

We began our life at Robin Hill with only one form, the remainder of which compose the present Sixth Form.  The first school soon became too small and in September, 1951, we moved to our present premises and for the first time had a sports field of our own.

We were blissfully enjoying a life free from worry when Mr. Cooke sprang upon us the task of editing this, our school's first literary venture.  And so, having delayed the writing of this editorial until the last possible minute, we now offer you our first attempt.

Since an appeal by Mr. Higson, there has flowed a steady trickle into our hands.  These contributions we classed under the following categories : good, bad and deadly.  In our next publication we are hoping for a greater response from the Middle School.

To simplify the task of editing the entries, a magazine committee was formed, consisting of Mr. Cooke, the editors and representatives from each House, with Mr. Wells as business manager, assisted by D. Elwell.  This select body closely scrutinised each entry and decided which were to be included.  To all contributors we would like to extend our thanks, and we ask those whose efforts are not published in this issue not to be discouraged and to try again for future editions.

The summer term is now upon us, and with it the usual outdoor activities and also the end of term examinations and, for the Fifth Form, the goal of all they have been studying for since entering a Grammar School.  We wish these entrants the best of luck in their forthcoming examinations.
Also to compensate for these worries come the pleasures of the summer term. Various trips, outings and camps will be held and already the preparations are in progress.

And with these words we offer you your first School Magazine, which we hope will be followed by many others, and which we hope you will all enjoy reading.

THE EDITORS.
