    Default Meaning of sentences

    1. The class was dismissed and the students walked quickly to the school gates.

    2. The students were dismissed and they walked quickly to the school gates.

    Do both sentences have the same meaning in the sense that the students walked quickly to the school gates after the dismissal bell rang?

    Many thanks.
