School is Picture Perfect at 400September 29th, 2014
Picture this – more than 1,500 pupils and staff from a family of historic schools gathering for one very special photo shoot.
On Monday morning, just that happened on the playing fields of Monmouth School.
To mark its 400th Anniversary, children aged between three and 18, teachers and support staff from the five Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools united to capture the momentous milestone on camera.
Dr Steven Connors, Headmaster of Monmouth School, said: “It is the first time in the long history of the Schools that all of us have come together for a photograph, and I am so delighted to have been part of it.
“It was quite a challenge to bring us all together and took around an hour to set up for five minutes of photography on a fairly misty morning.
“But it was absolutely worth the hard work, and I’m sure the snapshot in our history will bring back fond memories for years to come.”
