If you can identify the group, and the names of any individuals please tell me.

This early 20th century school group are sitting in front of a board which reads:

Ware Parish C. E. School - Standard III  19 S

 

As can be seen the original of this picture was very faded.

Can you identify any of the pupils, the teachers, or the year?

I suspect that the "19" is for 1919 - but can anyone confirm it?
