Dinner at the Desks
"This school had only:
- two schoolrooms.
- a janny's office.
- a tiny teacher's lounge for two.
Where else could the children eat their dinner
but on their desks? That's what I did when I had to go to school
dinners at the school because my dad was in hospital for a month or so.
The children in the photo didn't leave much on
their plates. Craigmillar was a working class area where many people
had no jobs or lived on low incomes. Sometimes a school dinner was the
only hot meal some kids got the whole day!"
