Norwich School intends to create a WWI exhibition telling the story of the 350+ boys from the school who served their country during the conflict and in particular, the 52 who sadly lost their lives.
The exhibition will draw information from the school archives, the Norfolk Archives and the Imperial War Museum. This will be augmented with support material including cap badges, emblems, cigarette cards, medals and soldier’s uniforms. The exhibition will be open to our pupils and their families as well as those from other schools, ONs and the general public. All will be welcome to learn about the war and even experience what it was like through hands-on activities including a life-size trench.
The spectacle will be hosted in the Norwich School Chapel Crypt from October until December 2014. We are seeking support for this project from the Heritage Lottery Fund but the funding available will not cover all the costs. Your donations totalling £3,196 through the Head Master’s Fund will make up the difference so the exhibition would simply not be possible without your support of the Annual Fund.
Over the next few years, the priority of the Head Master’s Fund will be to invest in the school site to address the need to increase space and adapt some of the current facilities to meet the demands of modern education. The fund will also help the school expand its role in the community.
