Year Six Visit to Thomas Philipot's Almshouse

Over the last week, Class M and N had the privilege of visiting Thomas Philipot's Almshouse behind Eltham High Street.

After a brisk walk from St Mary's, we were invited into the common room and children were given the opportunity to ask questions about their experiences of Evacuation during World War II. The residents were able to share their feelings about being sent away from their family at such a young age. Both the children and the former evacuees enjoyed their time together; the residents commented on how well behaved our children were. 

A special thanks must go to Sharon and Mr Jackson for helping organise the event.
