Log Book

Extract from the school log book
  As with almost every other school in rural Powys, the early years were a struggle to establish regular attendence in the face of illness and the need for local poor families to send their children to work whenever there was an opportunity of an extra income. From almost the very beginning the Headmaster recorded absences for haymaking and the monthly meeting of the Calvinist Methodists.

  This extract reads:-
"Holiday today in consequence of the Monthly Meeting of the Calvinistic Methodists."
Mr Exton worked hard to establish his school and by 6th June he had 78 on his books and 92 by the 13th. all of these children were housed in just two small schoolrooms.
