Ex-pupil visits school after 90 years @Tickenham


This morning, 16th May, we were visited by ex-pupil June Tripp. June attended Tickenham C of E Primary School 90 years ago! It was absolutely fascinating hearing her talk about what the school was like: how they had a big fireplace in each of the two classrooms which they sat around after walking to school when it was cold and wet. They would also put their milk bottles in front of the fire so that they had warm milk to drink at playtime too! The children were shocked that the toilets were outside and the boys only had a bucket to use! June has such fond and happy memories of her time as a pupil at Tickenham and the children loved hearing her stories and telling her theirs too!
