History of Polish School

Polish School history book for the 65th anniversary in 2018

The Polish School is writing a book on its history for the upcoming 65th anniversary. A section of the book will be devoted to the personal recollections of past pupils and teachers from all eras, from the 1950s to the present day.

So we would like to hear from you if you can write a couple of pages of your memories. This will give current and future generations a personal insight into what Polish School life was like in our long and proud history.

Leave a record for your children and grandchildren about your involvement in a volunteer-run school that has served generations of children with Polish heritage for 65 years. Don’t miss out. Polish School will also gratefully accept any pre-orders to help fund the printing cost.
