Malachi class went back in time to the 6th November 1877, to the Ragged School in Copperfield (run by Dr. Barnardo). Miss Perkins, who was our class teacher for the afternoon, gave us an experience that will be difficult to forget. We all got to see what life was like for a child in the Victorian Era. We got an insight into the importance of attendance, punctuality, cleanliness, handing out supplies, prayer, spellings, vocal gymnastics and behaviour in class. Everything learned will have in impact on each person’s future. Thank goodness we don’t have the cane anymore!
