Elstree in World War 1
Mr Christopher Normand, a former parent, came to Elstree to speak to the school about Old Elstree boys who were killed in the Great War. He has uncovered an astonishing amount of information from the Elstree archives and gave a real flavour of what school life was like around the turn of the century. He picked out a wonderfully representative sample of half a dozen boys, all of whose stories were remarkable in some way. It was an incredibly powerful and moving talk.
