‘The Story of Oswin Avenue School' – an exhibition coming to Danum Gallery, Library and Museum in Doncaster
and live on Freeview channel 276
These three diverse personalities were united by their association with the Oswin Avenue School in Balby.
The exhibition, ‘The Story of Oswin Avenue School’, has been developed by the ‘Ossie through the Ages’ project under the direction of Tony Armstrong, a history graduate and former pupil of the school.
Tony has been working on the project for the past two years, during which time he has encountered a wide range of people who studied and worked at the school, including professional athletes, playwrights, academics, actors, artists and philanthropists.
Those people are now celebrated in this exhibition.
The exhibition brings together around fifty framed story boards, as well as artwork produced by former pupils, photographs, video clips (by former teacher Keith Old) and other original objects relating to the school and people.
