6J Attend Ragged School

Posted by Mr Johnston on 05/12/22 at 03:48 PM

​6J stepped back in time this afternoon to experience what school life would have been like for Victorian children. We started with an inspection of fingernails to ensure cleanliness, listened to passages from the Bible (St. Paul’s school was founded by the church in 1873) before reciting our times tables. We also practised our handwriting before learning about the countries of the British Empire. The children were great sports - particularly those who ‘experienced’ Victorian punishments, such as the ‘dunce’ cap!
