Brackenber Day

Ever Hopeful of re-kindling Brackenber's memory, I think I shall dedicate my articles to the old school today.

I will re-publish several older entries which I think may be of interest to Old Brackenbrians and their friends.


This was the final correspondence I received from Brackenber's last headmaster, Mr John Craig, following his retirement. It is clearly valedictory in nature.

It reflects Mr Craig's feelings about Brackenber; his profound devotion and deep affection for what became his home and his life; his dedication, care and passion for our school:-

My goodness I recognize the handwriting - from mental images of my report card or other documents. Wonderful memories of a wonderful school. All further schooling turned out to be an utter disappointment after BHS . When was this letter written? (RN - 82-87)
