The following photos were taken as part of numerous display boards which were produced for open days at St Elphin's School – circa 1990s.

The girl standing up with the snooker cue in her hand is Cathy Yip and it is thought that the other girl is Leoni Evans. LtoR on the table tennis table is Holly Brown and Katie Whittle.

Below: Peter Armstrong MBE, a former postman for St Elphin's School, attended the Archive Weekend at St Elphin's Park in October 2019, organised by Lizzy Dickie. He gave Lizzy a photocopy of a 1915 postcard of the hockey team of St Elphin’s School with the names of the girls on the reverse: Windly, Douglas, Harland, Tomisp, Bennett, Ashton, Armstrong, Gilbeam, Wichem, Champion & Tomlinson. Unfortunately, we don’t know the order in which they are named.
