School takes leap back to days of old

This included the whole school dressing in early 20th century clothing. Students and teachers wore old hats, long socks, long skirts and brooches.

The school also held an old-fashioned assembly with memorabilia including books, photos and school equipment on display.

Some of the more unusual rules for teachers of the time entertained the audience.

‘Teachers had a bit of fun with these rules and we discovered that not one of us would be able to teach if we were working in 1915,’ teacher Lisa Miller said.

She said a parade, complete with old fashioned music, was held before a best dressed winner was chosen from each class.
