City teachers plan party to mark 50 years since training

Have your say

Teachers who completed their training in Sheffield 50 years ago are planning a reunion celebration.

Members of the 1964 class of the City of Sheffield College of Education, now part of Sheffield Hallam University, will meet up later this month to mark the anniversary.

The event will take place from 11am on Saturday, September 20, at the Collegiate Crescent site.

Maureen Cope, whose maiden name was Davies, is one of the former students who has arranged the event.

She said: “It was felt by a group of us who have kept in touch over the years that it would be good to have a reunion day.”

Former students who did their training at the college between 1964 and 1967 are welcome to attend the event, which will include lunch, refreshments and a guided tour of the site.
