Education in Action - Sheila Lobley

Twenty six children from the Gawcott and Tingewick Infant Schools, near Buckingham, visited the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre, Quainton, with three teachers and three support assistants. The children were divided into three groups and taken on a tour of the centre by volunteer guides.

Head Teacher of both schools, Carole Chandler, said that this visit was part of the curriculum topic on transport, and was very informative, an excellent day, with a good balance between listening and the more practical side of how railways used to run. The children said, "we learnt lots - our favourite bit was standing on the old footbridge and watching the long train go underneath!

The photograph shows some of the children from both schools, together with Ann Essen dressed in Victorian Costume.
