We no longer put life event details on the site - in order to protect you from identity theft.
This is where you can make an announcement about a life event.
In the Newsletter in the olden days we used to call this 'hatched, matched and dispatched' - and entries were very minimalistic. But now we have a cyber-existance and an emailed Newsletter we can make them a little more detailed and include photos.
We have now extended the announcements to include anniversary celebrations, you getting a new job, you travelling the world and gaining (even more) qualifications.... these will go in 'News in Brief'
To put a picture on the site you need to e-mail it to me - at firstname.lastname@example.org - together with a caption.
The caption should include your years at WGHS, your house and your maiden name (if applicable). I will then sort these into year group sections when we have enough to make that necessary.
I have made a contact form for you to submit announcements. Click here to open it.
In the 'old days' a marriage or birth was simply a line in the letter, but with today's technology we can include a photo and a paragraph of text. Most of you happily distribute these on social networks, but the advantage of the site will be that you can see how those you did not keep in contact with are getting on....
The other thing that you can announce on here is your degree result.
In the OGU Newsletter we put in details of the degree results that are sent in to us on the cyberboard for that year.
In the 'News in Brief' you can do a similar thing but include more details and a photo of the happy day too - the cyberboards are online - but details and photos are not.
On a sadder note, announcements can be made of the passing of an old girl (or teacher). Obituaries can be written by friends and family and put up on the website for the community to read if you so wish - as a permanent online memorial in the context of WGHS.
