The Gordon Schools 2000 - Whole School Millennium Photograph
To celebrate the Millennium, all pupils and staff in the secondary department of The Gordon Schools were pictured together. Tempest Photographers produced the resulting image in October 2000. A first attempt had been made earlier in the session but the photograph turned out to be blurred at the margins. The photograph that is reproduced here was taken on the adjoining cricket pitch on a very cold Autumn day, showing the colours of the leaves on the trees at their best. The photographer began to line up the seniors in the back row on the staging at 9am. They were still standing there in their shirt sleeves over two hours later by the time the last of the pupils in the front row were seated. The photograph was taken at around 11.15am, when a slight drizzle started. It is a wonderful souvenir and perfectly captures the spirit of the time.
