Mr Ian Willden from Essex popped into the school recently during a trip to Penarth, he spent the morning looking through old photographs, reminiscing about his time spent at the Gibbs Home during the late 1950’s, putting names to the faces on some of our photographs and talking about the friends he made, his fondness for the Sister who looked after his ‘house’ and they day to day routine of the school at the time. He met some of our pupils during his visit, including Tom Wade who is a volunteer and an ex-pupil himself. They were able to share stories and experiences and both agreed that having the opportunity to meet with ex-pupils would be a great support. Watch this space!!
