PUPILS from a York school stepped back in time at the weekend to the 1950s.

Youngsters from The Mount private school looked at what life was like for boarders in the fifties when they recreate a boarding bedroom for the school's annual Family Day.

Former scholars, students and staff have donated items authentic to the 1950s for the bedroom in the Quaker girls’ school’s onsite Health Centre, which was originally a dormitory, and will be on display for revellers attending Family Day, as well as the Old Scholars’ reunion at The Mount this coming weekend.

Julie Lodrick, principal at The Mount, said: "The 1950s bedroom was a fun way to bring together our current families with old scholars during an enjoyable weekend of fellowship.

"There were many historical pieces from our archives, and old scholars agreed to kindly lend the school memorabilia for the showcase which has a very authentic feel. It is lovely to be able to recreate a bit of history, even just for fun."
