St Ivo Entomology and Natural History Society
The St Ivo Entomology and Natural History Society was founded in 1957 and existed under the guidance of biology master Henry Berman until c2007. Regular examinations were held and prizes (for example the Edward Elkan prize) were awarded to students with the best results.
Members exhibited the society's animals on an annual basis at the Amateur Entomologists' Society exhibition in London: held at Holland Park School until the mid 1970s, then at Hounslow Civic Centre, and later at Kempton Park Racecourse. The society also regularly exhibited at the Cambridge Natural History Society exhibition, held in the Cambridge University Zoology Department, and the School's Natural History Societies' exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London. In addition, the animal collection was a regular feature at local fairs and were sometimes exhibited to other Cambridgeshire school classes.
Known amongst pupils as "ento" or less often as "ent soc", members wore a small yellow badge with a picture of a two spot ladybird "Adalia bipunctata". The society motto was "There is no they", meaning that members must take individual responsibility and not leave this to others (although the informal motto was actually "beg borrow and steal" to encourage resourcefulness). A significant number of former members pursued careers relating to animals and natural history.
