Burleigh School, Cheshunt
Mr Cuthbert's Class
This is Mr Cuthbert’s class in 1971.
The school colours were purple tie with a deep yellow bllouse for the girls and grey shirts and sweaters for the boys. The reason for purple ties was that it was the headmistress’s favourite colour.
The Headmisstress was at one time Miss Day; during the Lord’s Prayer, some children would say, ‘Give us Miss Day, our daily bread’!
