The original Visor magazines used the Latin words "Salvete" and "Valete" to welcome new pupils and to say goodbye to pupils leaving the school respectively. I have decided to use Salvete on this site to welcome new visitors to the site, many of whom are former pupils and staff of Birkenhead Institute.
A special welcome is therefore extended to the following former pupils who have contacted the site in the last couple of years:
ROBERT I. JOHNSON
Also, I would like to thank Gordon Hodgson, Alan Jones, Dave Forshaw, Stephen Abbott, Ben Johnson, Robert Johnson, Keith Sedman, Alexander Mclean, Neil Tudor, Nigel Thomas, Dean Johnson, Richard Hill and John Baker for their help in providing me with some excellent Birkenhead Institute items for this site, including some invaluable old B.I. photographs and Visor magazines.
