A bird bath and a plaque have been placed in a Gorleston school’s garden to commemorate a former headteacher. On Friday, 18 former staff of Stradbroke First School met together to commemorate David J Peppiatt, who had held the post of headteacher at Stradbroke First (now Primary) School, Lowestoft Road, from April 1978 to August 2000. His widow, Mrs Sandra Peppiatt, joined the former staff members.

Mr Peppiatt was a keen ornithologist and he shared this interest with the pupils.

Mrs Peppiatt then treated everyone to afternoon tea and they enjoyed an afternoon of reminiscing about old times at Stradbroke.
