A FORMER teacher is hoping to find new homes for a range of photographs produced by students.

Jane Jones tumbled across the items when clearing out her office at Ashington High School when she retired.

And now Jane, who spent 33 years teaching, is hoping to find homes for the items, which include old photographs of school teams.

The former head of girls’ PE at the school said: “I found a range of pictures in boxes that are the end of year team photographs for the various girls teams.

“I’m just looking to see if any former pupils who might be in the photographs want one.

‘‘Maybe they didn’t buy them at the time and want to reflect back on their time at the school.”

The pictures, believed to range from 1979 to 1992, will be left in the school’s reception until the end of January for anyone to view them.

Jane also found some ceramic three-foot artwork depicting the four saints who make up the ‘houses’ at the school.

They were given to her by a former Head of Art at the school, and she knows they were produced by children.

Jane is hoping to find some background information on the artwork, and comments from the pupils who produced it, in the hope that they could go on display at Woodhorn Museum.

Anyone who has information on the artwork should contact Ashington High School.
