Meeting Room Update

Over the past couple of weeks, Mrs White has been going through all the historic documents that the school inherited when the old Infants school was knocked down, the Juniors School was no longer an educational building, and the new Keyingham Primary School was built.

Within this collection there are quite a few Head Teachers logbooks. The earliest dates back to 11 May 1900. The Head Teacher reports when children from Hull were evacuated to Keyingham during the war, how there were outbreaks of influenza and how the caretaker kept sleeping in and not lighting the boiler to warm the school, resulting in pupils all wearing their ‘overcoats’. Plus many more fantastic entries.

One of the other books included in the collection is the ‘Punishment Book’. This is a log of incidents the Head Teacher had made when the children in school encountered various forms of punishment.

There are lots of photos, which are a delight to look through.

The meeting room now displays the fantastic collection, which you can see from the photos and video. Snapshots of historic events are pictured in the frames, starting with the earliest dates through to the present day. There a few present day items on display as well, including items that have been made from Graduate Awards.

We would like to invite you in next half term to view this room and take a look at the amazing collection. This will take place on the 17 April 2024 from 2.30pm onwards. The end of the school day will be as normal.
