The British helped improve eduction on the island of Kythera through the construction of several schools, including this one in Kato Hora. They were based on the Lancastrian system of education where one teacher was required to teach large numbers of students in one large hall. This photo was taken in 1985.
The keystone in the centre of the masonry arch over the entrance to the Lancastrian School at Milapidea is in the form of an anchor, possibly an allusion to the anchor as the Christian symbol of hope.
