School

Teachers at the camp's English-language school

There was an official school in the camp in which lessons were given in English. In addition there was also a Saturday school in which lessons were given in Polish by volunteers from among the camp community. Both schools were housed in the barracks. The photo shows the English teachers (headmistress Mrs Korhan is third from left).

Here is a school photograph from the early 1950s
