Padnell Juniors Jan 11th

Today marked the 50th anniversary of the opening of Padnell Junior School in Cowplain.

When Elaine & I arrived all of the classes were undertaking different projects relating to life in the ’60’s, with many of the children and staff dressed in typical costumes of the period. Some of the class projects were based on Andy Warhol paintings, while others had designed clothes, LP record covers and other relevant things.

This brings back memories!

There were displays of old school photographs in the hall, with pictures and albums dating back through the years to the very first day, together with appropriate newspaper cuttings.

Also in the hall were two 1960’s Lambretta scooters.

After a lot of hand-shaking with children from the various classes, we left for our next engagement.
