Each child was presented with a copy of John Bunyan’s 'Pilgrim’s Progress' and a Bible which they were expected to read. 'Pilgrim’s Progress' is an allegory about a Christian who overcomes many obstacles to reach the Celestial City. Quarrier believed it would inspire the children as they embarked on their journey to a new life.
