This image shows a page from the Skigersta School log book for 1920. The log books provides an insight into the daily life of the school, with a new entry added at least weekly by the teacher. Pupils are not normally mentioned within log books, but an exception appears to have been made for Norman who is at first off school due to illness and then moves to the neighbouring school at Lionel.
The CO is the Compulsory Officer, sometimes known as the Whipper-In. It was their job to check that all pupils attended school and to chase up those who were missing.
