    We've been donated hundreds of pictures of Lescudjack School. These pictures date from 1950's up until the school merged with Humphry Davy School in the 1980's.
    We are also in contact with most of the old teaching staff who are going to supply more pictures and help put the names to the faces.
    Do you know anyone from Lescudjack School?

      I was at Lescudjack 1960 to 1964, in your teaching list you ommited Mr J Thomas (Johnny) who taught sports Rugby in particular as at the time he was playing for PZ & Newlyn Pirates. I was also on the Holland trip, German trip and also remember a trip on the Paddle Steamer 'Bristol Queen' to the Isles of Scilly. Does anyone remember the method Mr Elwood used to start his Rover car, he used a half crown, (showing my age now) to short out two contacts which used to be part of his ignition switch. I also remember on the trip to Holland we went to KUKENHOF where you could see tulips as far as the eye could see, whilst there Mr Cock was filming with the school 35mm camera when the lens fell of into the lake, he then retrieved this having to roll his sleeves up and fishing around in the murky water.
