This has been a great opportunity to learn to produce web pages, something I have always thought to be very difficult. I have found it time consuming to research the material alongside the demands of shift work. We have worked together well meeting at the school on Saturday mornings. On occasions it seemed impossible that we should ever get there, but we never gave up. I have always wanted to learn web design and this experience has given me a starting point to develop further the skills I have learned. I would like to thank the Open University in conjunction with the Living Archive for coming up with this great program. This will help the present pupils at the school to understand the importance of keeping their school records for future reference. I would also like to thank the whole team for working with me and the people who I interviewed for sharing their valuable memories.

Having worked at Bushfield for many years as a teaching assistant and having had children attend the school, it was very interesting to find out some of the history behind the school. It has given me a sense of place within the history.
The project has enabled me to improve both people skills and computer skills and strengthened my interest in the history of our school.
|Jill Wiseman (children now left Bushfield)
I have enjoyed doing this award and I have learnt a lot about computers and the History of the school.
|Linda Goodwin (son currently at Wyvern School)
As a former pupil of Bushfield myself and also a life-long resident of Wolverton I found the project interesting and was able to contribute to it. Also my son will be a pupil in two years time and will benefit from it.

Daughter also attended Bushfield and is now at Secondary School. I come in to school most Mondays and play the piano during assemblies, an also help with the School Orchestra on Friday afternoons.
I occasionally take photos or video of school events and productions.
I have discovered much about Bushfield and the area of Wolverton during this project - it has a very interesting history!

My Son and Daughter attended Bushfield, and having this great opportunity , to work on the history of the School, and meet new friends within the Cluch Club , was fantastic. I've got a feel of what School was like then, and I hope others will enjoy the WEB as much as we have.

This has been a great opportunity for us to learn something about our School's long and commendable history. Today's pupils are justly proud of their beautiful school buildings and spacious grounds and these pages give some of the reasons for us enjoying these features today.
I hope that current pupils will be able to add to the research and recording of the school's history and look forward to hearing from any visitors to the site who can add to the information that we have already gathered.
