School log book entry 

This was written on 20th November 1947, and reads:
"School is closed for the day on account of the wedding of HRH Princess Elizabeth and Lt.Mountbatten.
The children are given a free cinema show and tea party through the generosity of the Hay townspeople. All teachers gave a helping hand".
No doubt the little children were very appreciative of the kindness of the people of the town !
