Holme School 1911 - 2011 - A Centenary History

£70.00

Product description

Very good condition with some minor signs of wear to covers

The struggle to provide a school education for a Cumbrian villiage heavily dependent on the fortunes of its matting mill and the farming community, was at times a difficult one. Headteachers had to combat epidemics which closed the school for weeks, the apathy of paretns for whom the education of their children was not the greatest priority and a budget which was always inadequate.
Holme School, 1911-2011, A Centenary History marks the occasion of the school's 100 years on its present site, and reveals the travails of these teachers through School Log Book Entries, Manager's Meeting minutes, newspaper reports and other documents. The journey from those early days to the present where clearly the fabric of the school has much improved, teaching methods have changed completely and children have a much brighter future is described in detail. Photographs of classes through the years will no doubt bring back memories for many, some faces remain anonymous, their names forgotten by the passage of time. There will be those who have moved to destinations far from Holme, others remain, the oldest resident in the village having started school in 1917.
All the children have one thing in common = they were Holme Scholars and hopefullym proud to have been so.
