Open event at doomed school

Have your say

A SHEFFIELD secondary school is holding an open day to mark the impending demolition of a school which has served its local community for more than 70 years.

The drop-in event at Parkwood Academy - formerly Herries School - is on Saturday, March 3, between 10am and 2pm.

The original school is being replaced by a new state-of-the-art building, due to open after Easter.

Former students and staff are invited to the open day and are asked to bring along any old photos or memorabilia on the day they might want to share.

Staff member Paul Howard, who is helping to organise the event with Janet Charlton, said: “The plan is for people to meet up with old friends and have a last, nostalgic look around.”
