New School

By kind permission of John King, Author

There was an interesting educatIonal development in the late autumn. It was the opening of a new school, Roslin School for Little Children. Located in one of the big houses in Luffman Road, it took children from four to eight years and used Montessori methods and taught Dalcrose Eurhythmics. The principal was Miss Mildred Steele of Newstead Road, the sister of Marshall Steele.

Before the end of the year there was yet another organisational development at the barracks — the need for a larger administrative staff had been discovered. As a result training was entered into on a very much larger scale and No.1 Artificer School of Instruction was opened with capacity for training up to 800 learner artificers. It was to do much to relieve the very serious shortage of artificers in the ASC.
