Did You Know …?

Mrs Debbie Turner | School Archivist

In 1919, The Spanish ‘Flu hit hard with a worldwide epidemic claiming over 19 million lives.

TSS Founder, Horace Dixon, put the School in complete lock-down and isolated the boys. He banned visits from outsiders, delivery people and even family members. Dixon was so concerned he made the boys cancel their mid-winter holidays and nobody was allowed in or out of TSS for over three months.

To Dixon’s credit, the lock-down worked as no TSS student contracted the disease. School life returned to normal by the end of that year.

Stay well everyone!
