This was blowing about in the wind outside. Such cards will be familiar to thousands of past pupils who were issued with one at the start of each school year. The school day, beginning after assembly at 9:05am, was split into 8 periods of 40 minutes; break was between periods 3 & 4 from 11:05am-11:20am; lunch (50 minutes) was either period 6 or 7 depending what year you were in and the day finished at 3:20pm. Nowadays pupils are given a computer print-out of their classes.
Demolition of the former Bangor Grammar School
Bangor Grammar School LinkExternal link was located at College Avenue, Bangor, from 1906 until December 2012 when it moved to a new building on Gransha Road in the town. The vacant site was demolished in early 2013 pending redevelopment for "...apartments and erection of 43 dwelling units comprising a mix of detached and semi-detached, landscaping and associated car parking, site and access works" (DoE Planning Application ref W/2012/0103/F). The only part of the school retained is the former Crosby Building / Crosby House J5182 : Bangor Grammar School which will be converted for residential use.
