The Story Of Merry Oak School
Author: Eddie Croxson
This Southampton School closed in 1984 and among the artefacts that Bitterne Local History Society acquired was a complete set of the school magazines that were published annually from 1948 until closure. Opening and reading these magazines is like opening a time capsule buried for future generations. Eddie Croxson has successfully extracted articles, including the photographs, showing the changes to education nationally and locally after the 1939-45 war and many stories and articles written by the pupils themselves. The book also includes reports from the four Headmasters covering this period, Mr Permain, Mr Haslam, Mr Ford and Mr Shaw. A book to be enjoyed by past pupils and staff of this period!
