Class Photographs

The school children had their class photographs taken today. This made me think about the box in the store room full to the brim of class photos taken over the years. This was the oldest one I could find. It was taken in 1898 (the year our school log book was started, although the school was opened in 1864) It looks like the younger children of the school, probably year 1 so children about 6 years old. They do look like they had put on their best clothes.

21st May

21st May 2010

Today we did some more work on the dragon in class 2.

He just needs his tail doing and some eyes. The children want some fire coming out of his mouth too.

21st May 1905
"Empire Day" celebrated in school in the afternoon, as follows:- Lesson 1.30-2.30 (registers closed 1.30 prompt!)
Lesson on "The Empire-it's growth of greatness" having been given in each class separately, an address with questioning was given by me, and the National Anthem was then sung. Cheers were given for the King, The Navy, the Army, the Mother Country and the colonies, and the children then played out until 3.30. After this prayers were said and the school dismissed.
