I have not seen this picture before and I'm quite intrigued. Some for the children look very young, perhaps even pre-school. Has anyone put a date to it? 

Editor:  Below the first photograph, the date July 1945 is mentioned.  I have added the date to the title.

At this morning's Memory Day at Laindon Library, we spoke to Pat Hutchins (No. 24 in the above picture) who explained to us that this was not a VE Day Party.

These pictures must be of years 1 and 2. I don't recognise any of the pupils names. I was in 3A at the time
