Patricia, taken approx 1963

Patricia was a pupil at Trinity from 1960 to 1967; after leaving school she trained as a teacher in Derbyshire and then returned to live and work in Northampton.  In 1970, she married Alan Moore, who was at Trinity School from 1956 to 1963, and they have two sons, who also went to Trinity.

The family spent 1990 in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia on a teacher exchange programme and Patricia and Alan returned to Perth, Australia in 1998 on a similar programme.  Since 2000, Patricia has spent up to 6 weeks of the year in Africa and, more recently Asia, working as a volunteer.  Here is her account of her life living and working in local conditions.  It is a fascinating account.  Last update June 2011.
