Markhams Chase School Photos

From 1953--1960

By Patsy Mott

Some time ago I saw Miss Pike and we had a happy time chatting about the old school. Miss Ina Pike started her career at Markhams Chase School in 1952, her first post after leaving teachers training college. She kindly offered me her collection of old school photographs she had of the various celebrations, sports events & music Festivals throughout the years at the school. Although some of the pictures are also in various articles elsewhere on our the site I thought by keeping this group together in the same context it would be easier to compare the children year by year as they developed.

Fortunately Miss  Pike was very organised & most pictures were dated with all the children's names on the reverse. Where the names are not available you can all have another great game of  guessing who all those innocent little faces belong to.

We hope many of you old Laindoners will enjoy seeing themselves,relations & friends once again from those far off "Happy School Days"
