[19 JAN 99] CHRISTINE ODDY PRESS RELEASE
Oddy To Join Stoke Park School Celebrations

Euro MP Christine Oddy will join fellow ex-pupils of Coventry's Stoke Park School when they celebrate the 80th anniversary of its founding.

Around 200 former pupils, many of whom now live in other parts of Britain, are expected to attend a series of events in the city to mark Stoke Parks establishment in January 1919 as a girls' grammar school.

Ms Oddy, who represents Coventry and North Warwickshire, attended the school from 1967 to 1974 before reading law at London University.

The service will be followed by a buffet lunch at the Britannia Hotel and old boys and girls have been invited to join another ex-pupil, Coventry's Lord Mayor, Cllr Maggie Rosher for tea in the Guildhall.

Stoke Park School was originally situated in Bray' s Lane and moved to its present site in Dane Road during the Second World War, during which part of the buildings were used as a f ire station. In 1975 it became a mixed comprehensive school and has now been designated as a school and community technology college.

Ms Oddy said:

"I owe a tremendous amount to Stoke Park for the education it gave me and look back with affection on my days there.

"I particularly enjoyed History of Art with Miss Glover, English with Miss Payne and French with Miss Ball and Mrs Evans. I’d already decided by 16 that my ambition was to study law on the continent."
