Although Kindergarten was never considered a House in its own right, in February 2016, I decided to provide a separate page for it. Miss Reeves taught Kindergarten for many years and, sadly, in August 2015 she passed away. Following her passing, I was sent a number of photographs by the Longstone History Society who had been given various non-family papers by Miss Reeves' family. They are of Miss Reeves with her various Kindergarten classes and, thanks to Lizzy Atwell-Dickie, we have been able to identify the years they were all taken.

Below is a photo from circa 1973, taken on front drive and Miss Reeves is the first adult from the right. Mrs Higgins is the first adult from the left (with white hair).

I would be grateful if anyone could confirm the photo was taken in 1973 and, more importantly, what the occasion was.
