This photo was in the 1959 school magazine with an article by an Upper IIIrd pupil (equivalent of Year 7 today), here is an extract:
"We couldn't decide what we wanted to see first as the roaring of lions, chattering of monkeys and splashing of seals were very alluring and exciting. In the end, after a lot of indecision, the lions won and we set off for their enclosure, passing brightly coloured birds and white, fuzzy bears on the way........The elephants towered over us and we felt minute by the side of them, one of them ate a book that some boys were looking ar. We all hoped he got indigestion for being so greedy.
All the parents were sure of one letter that week, and the postbox was filled with postcards the next day.
