I work at the current Hunslet Moor Primary School and am researching the history of the school. Thanks to the amazing power of social media I have already discovered quite a bit but would love to know more.
Did you or any member of your family attend the school, either at it’s current site or at Burton Ave? Do you have any funny stories to tell or do you remember any important events that happened while you were there? Either personal, local, or national? For example I know the school was closed for the day during Prince Andrews wedding.
There were a number of local men who served or were killed during the World Wars, are you related to any of these men? Did any of them attend Hunslet Moor?
Can you help create a timeline of head teachers or tell me anything about the staff you can remember?
The photo is of a piece of stained glass, I believe from the original school on Burton Ave. Do you remember where in the school it was? I know it is the school badge but what is the story behind the glass? Who made it.?
History should never be a just a list of dates and events but rather it should be living, breathing memories of real people who lived and experienced life and all its ups and downs. Any information you have, however trivial it might seem to you, will help me paint a picture for our children of living history in Hunslet.
