A Schoolgirl’s War
Mary Smith was a secondary school headteacher until 2014 and has recently produced a book entitled ‘A Schoolgirl's War’. This features the exquisite and highly original artwork of a Kent school art teacher during WW2. She set out to document in paint and pencil the lives of school children as the war unfolded. She recorded disrupted schooling, air-raids, doodlebugs, and underground lessons in shelters.
Her talk includes a selection of these paintings together with some anecdotes about wartime school life in the South-East.
