Bourne School in 2006

Thanks to Dave Papworth for these photographs of what was once known as Bourne Secondary School, taken on a return visit to Singapore in September 2006.

Present day students were leaving for the day.

Bourne School stairs

Looking down at what I think was the science block.

Kath Upshall who kindly showed me around.

View looking down from the top, I think the building on the left was put up post Bourne era

At the long steps end of the main old building, Kath told me the building over on the right has now been condemned and cannot be used

Same position as previous photo but now looking back along the front of the main old building. (Thatís my wife looking hot)

An old plague with a date of 1932.

An old plague with a date of 1932, presumably the year the building was put up

A view along the other side of what I think was the old science block.  Note students have the luxury of air conditioning today!

A view along one of the external corridors, not quite sure where

A view taken from the bend in the steps, this was where the prefects used to herd you if you were deemed to be pushing in the queue while waiting for the buses.

Long range view of those steps, I counted 122 by the way.
