PONTEFRACT IN 1980

10th January 1980
PUPILS WORKING HOLIDAY

Thirty-two pupils from Carleton High School, Pontefract, spent a week at Hornsea Centre as part of a field work trip. Study visits were made to a deserted village site at Argam, an iron age site with monoliths at Rundstone, and there was also trips to Bridlington, Hull and Beverley. The staff at the Hornsea Centre provided a Christmas dinner for the pupils, followed by a party. Before breaking up  for Christmas, pupils from the school's Form 12 held a bring and buy sale in aid of the 'Blue Peter' Cambodia Appeal Fund.
