Duke of Edinburgh Volunteering in the LRC
Ying Hang from Year 10 came to me in November 2018 and asked if she could volunteer in the LRC. I was delighted, as there are many roles that she could have taken on, from supporting the knitting group to library tasks.
One of the oldest and most extensive parts of our archive collection is the examination results. These papers date from 1898 to 1967, and list the subject, such as Botany and Needlework and the marks for those subjects. Student’s names are listed and from 1951 dates of birth, however, in the early days, not all students took their final exams.
Ying Hang has been volunteering every week in the LRC getting these results into our archive electronically, and I would like to thank her on behalf of the Alumnae Committee for her diligence and commitment to this work.
Good luck to all the Duke of Edinburgh Award volunteers across the school.
