Gwynie Fisk, 7, and her sister Alie, 5 riding Jazz with Lola Maglaras, 5, taking the reins during Arrowtown School's 150th anniversary celebrations yesterday.
The girls were among pupils, teachers and parents in period costume, including those on horseback and even a horse-drawn carriage, making their way to school for a day of special activities to mark the milestone.
After arriving at school a roll was taken before a traditional assembly including the singing of God Save the Queen then a day of activities that reflected a mid-19th century curriculum.
Pupils were given lessons in cursive script, enjoyed old-fashioned games of marbles and hopscotch and were treated to a performance by the Arrow Miners Band.
