Children at a Lowton school enjoyed a trip back in time.

Children in Key Stage Two, at Lowton St Mary’s Primary School, had a Victorian educational experience last week as part of St Mary’s 150th Anniversary celebrations.

As the current church hall used to be the main school building in years past, it made for an authentic recreation of the way things used to be.

With a strict headmistress in charge wearing period costume, there was no talking and a meticulous hygiene check. The punishment for any disobedience was standing in the corner nose to the wall.

But the children’s behaviour was excellent throughout the day and staff appreciated comments made by people visiting the classroom to see what the Victorian experience was all about.

A spokesman for the school said: “We would like to thank St Mary’s Church for funding this informative educational experience for the children.”
