These children at a Leamington school stepped back in time to celebrate a centenary

These children at a Leamington school stepped back in time to celebrate a centenary. The youngsters at St Peter's Roman Catholic School dressed in Victorian clothing for a day to get a taste of what school life was like 100 years ago. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the main school block in Augusta Place, although a school was established next door by nuns as early as 1852. There are now 83 pupils but at one time there were as many as 700, said Sister Marie, of the Sisters of Charity Convent, in Milverton Terrace. Sister Marie, who taught at the school for 15 years, joined the children for their celebrations. The headmistress, Mrs. Winifred Swarbrick, said: "It has been a great success. All the children really entered into the spirit of it and came along in Victorian clothing." The youngsters will have a chance to dress up again tomorrow when they take part in the Leamington Carnival.
