Paddling Pool

By Rebecca Major

These are a couple of photos taken in 1960 of the paddling pool at Bandley Hill Infants. My Mum (Kitty Harris) was a teacher there and my brother Max is in the pictures.

  • I attended Bandley Hill from 1959 until 1963. I remember the paddling pool. It was a Friday treat in the summer. My first teacher was Miss Phillips then I think Mr Warner followed by Mrs Hildrich who was very glamorous with red hair. My worst memory was not being allowed out to play until I had eaten the fish pie which resembled wallpaper paste! Mr Koram was the head of the junior school. I remember him as a friendly man always smiling. He was a vegetarian and was thought to walk from Letchworth every day to the school. How true this was I don’t know. We studied French and ballet in the juniors with a Mr Lambert. I can remember making baskets with Mr Phillips. Loved that school. It was so sad leaving when my parents moved us to another house.

  • I went to Bandley Hill Infant School from 1959 but don’t remember the paddling pool. I do remember one of my teachers Mrs Turtle? and I remember being the milk monitor in my class. Warm milk (yuck) in third of a pint bottle (those were the days!).
