Strange things from the box of photos No. 3

This certificate was awarded to my mother when she was in Grade Six.  It’s hard to imagine Grade Six girls (because I’m sure that it was only girls) being taught baby-wrangling at school today.  No doubt these 1930s girls would have been expected to help their mothers.

And her 77% result? Well, I guess that’s 3/4 of a baby.  It was obviously enough.

  1. I had one of those certificates. It was called Mothercraft when I was at school in the 1960s.

  2. Was it in Grade six? It seems terribly young.

  3. Actually, when I count up, she’s in Year 8 because Central Schools went up to Form 2. And now that you mention it, I do remember ‘Mothercraft’ but I don’t think I ever did it. (My children would probably concur!
