There must have been the smell of fresh paint still in the air when these photos were taken! The School had opened on Monday 9th July 1928, and these photographs were taken just 16
days later on Wednesday 25th July 1928! We believe they were taken in front of the large classroom at the east end of the school, which had a folding screen to allow it to become two rooms.
If you know any more names, please let us know.

I am told that the photo was taken because they all had had full school attendance.
The family lived on High Burgage, Their mother sadly died when the children were young.
Florence Moss nee' Brumby (their mother) was buried in Winteringham Churchyard on the 3rd Jan 1930, The small boy Ted was killed in the Korean war, and is remembered on the Scunthorpe War memorial.
The photo is probably from the early 1930s .... the boy in the second class photo who is holding the Slate with the date on, is the boy back row left in this photo.
