St. Hilary School

Alessandra Ausenda has worked with Class 4 and their teacher, Kate Ellis. They have been looking at life in the parish in the 1940's and invited three former pupils of the to relate stories about their school days. There was a particular focus on food but the pupils were interested in all aspects of life at school, especially punishments and toilets! The interviews have been recorded for our project and the class have interpreted their findings by making picnic baskets, describing what they have learned through various media. They will share the information at a picnic with each group describing an aspect of life at St Hilary School 70 years ago.
