High Tide and the Heron Dived:A Totnes Childhood by Janet Coggin 1936-2010. Janet attended DHS from 39-53. In the memoir she describes school life, the staff, and Curry with much affection - and even remembers word for word Curry's talk on "Why no sex at School" . She also writes about Totnes and Devon in the forties and fifties and her unusual father, an imprisoned conscientious objector in WWI , now bringing up his daughters alone. She remembers the war, the victory, and after.
