SPECIAL YEAR COMING UP FOR BRIGG SCHOOL AND EX-PUPILS
A detailed and colourful PDF format newsletter is compiled every year - containing news about former Brigg school pupils and staff - and is emailed around the world to people now living far away from the town, as well as those still in our district.
David Brittain, retired headteacher of Sir John Nelthorpe School, collates items for inclusion and is now welcoming pictures and reports for the 2019 edition, to be published in the New Year.
Contributions for the Briggensians' 2019 Newsletter can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Briggensians' Association serves those who attended or taught at Brigg Grammar School, Brigg Girls' High School, Sir John Nelthorpe School and the Brigg Sixth Form.
David says 2019 will be a special year for all past students, as it marks the 350-year anniversary of the founding of Brigg Grammar School and 100 years since the creation of the Girls' High School.
The association will be holding its next Annual Dinner at Elsham Golf Club on Saturday, 16th March 2019. Booking details will be included in the 2019 Newsletter and publicised well in advance on Brigg Blog.
Sir John Nelthorpe School will holding special celebrations in the summer term and the project Our Place in Time will be the centrepiece.
It will involve remodelling the original schoolroom and upgrading the Music and Drama suite on the Grammar School Road site.

PICTURED: The outside of part of the original schoolroom, nearest the camera. New wooden doors were installed in the entrance (centre) in 1969 to mark the 300th anniversary of the school being founded through a generous bequest in Sir John Nelthorp's will. This original part of today's Sir John Nelthorpe School is the only grade one listed building in Brigg.
