Clock turned back 100 years as students dress the part
MIALLO State School turned back time last Friday to spend the day like students would have 100 years ago - and they even dressed the part.
The day started with a school assembly where principal Anet Ridley read out the school rules from 100 years ago, including for teachers - male and female teachers were not allowed to socialise or go out past 8pm.
The students were very excited when Ms Ridley ripped up the blue cards given out to them if they were naughty - until she pulled out a cane and explained that 100 years ago if anyone misbehaved they would get a smack across their hands.
Luckily for the students they escaped the cane, instead enjoying a day of games including tugo-war and sack-racing. The school also raised its new flag featuring the slogan “100 years and counting” and created a time capsule for Miallo students in the future.
