A local history project is attempting to find the family of D Goodman, an ex pupil of Cockburn High School who attended the school during the Second World War.
As previously reported on South Leeds Life, the Learning Trust (South Leeds) which includes Cockburn High School is running a local history project to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. As part of the project they will be holding a commemoration ceremony in July and organisers would like to include a poem written by D Goodman.
The school aren’t sure if D Goodman was a boy or a girl, so they may have married and have a different surname now. The poem was published in the school magazine in 1943, when he or she was in class 3A.
Peter Nuttall from the Learning Trust said:
“D Goodman would be in their 80s now if they’re still alive. We would like to invite him, her or the family to the ceremony. If you have any information about D Goodman or their family, we would be very grateful if you would get in touch.”
Peter can be contacted on 0113 386 2336 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 1943 Cockburn High School was a grammar school, located on Burton Road near Hunslet Moor. It moved to its current site on Gipsy Lane in the 1980s.
