Richard Burnige


Yes that’s me, standing next to Ronnie Burch & Leonard Konopski on the first page of the Risinghill Photoboard. It was taken on the Spanish trip, I think in 1960/61.

I left the school 1961, as I thought to take up a career in engineering, but I returned a year later to take up the post of Jr Workshop Technician! A member of staff! I have been in education all my life until I took early retirement 3 years ago.

I was in Defoe house under the fine leadership of Miss Coates.

I am now living in Carshalton in Surrey.

I have found one of my old friends - Ray Brett, but I would love to trace John East.
