‘Warwick School in 110 objects’ is a project to mark Warwick School’s 1,100th anniversary in 2014. The project will culminate in an online museum exploring different facets of the school through 110 items. Items chosen might include such things as the manuscript of the first school song, a sporting memento or the electric clock which rang the school bell for thirty years. It might be something you created at school, a letter sent home or simply an object that prompts a particular experience or memory. Each object, artifact or memento will tell a different story, reflecting something of the life and history of Warwick School.
‘Warwick School in 110 objects’ will go live in January 2014. The first 58 objects will be displayed online at the start of the anniversary year. The other objects will be added as a weekly blog. While some items will be on display in the museum at school, all 110 objects will be viewable online throughout 2014 and beyond.
To start the project, some of the objects will be chosen from the school’s museum and archive collection. However we hope that most of the remaining objects will come from current boys, teaching staff, Old Warwickians and other members of the school community.
