PUPILS at Shafton Primary took a step back in time to celebrate the school's 100th anniversary.

Black and white uniforms, The Lord's Prayer and even a dunce's cap were the order of the day in the Victorian class room created for the special event on Friday.

Former pupils met children and staff and shared memories about their time there.

These included 93-year-old Iris Baker who came along to see the displays and old photographs.

Headteacher Ruth Lyons said the day was a great success.

"It was absolutely brilliant, we had so many people," she said. "We had a lot of people visit who used to come here and some ex-teachers. They were wonderful and they told us a lot of what the school used to be like."

Surprised they haven't knocked it down and built a new one for all the immigrant kids we have in the borough yet.
You know schools built by developers then we pay them back at an extortionate rate over the forthcoming years?
Private Finance Initiative my arse!
