100 Year Celebration

The summer of 2010 saw the school preparing to celebrate its centenary year with a commemorative fete.  Although not always a primary school, there has been a school on this site for the last 100 years.

 

On Saturday 17th July the school's staff and governors welcomed past and present pupils and their families, former staff and members of the local community to join in with their celebrations. The day began with tours of the school, so that the visitors could see how the school has changed over the years. Each class had 'adopted' a decade over the lead up to the celebrations and lots of work was on display to show what the children had learnt. Later in the morning, the occasion was marked by the planting of a commemorative tree, followed by the official opening of the fete.                                   

          

The fete offered all the usual attractions and refreshments and the stalls remained busy all through the afternoon.  One of the more popular attractions was the stocks and both Mrs Levy and Mr Dickson were great sports at taking their turn. The children enjoyed the bouncy castles and there were prizes galore on the tombola.

 

 

It was really lovely to see lots of former pupils meeting up in the reunion tent, looking at old photos and catching up on each others news.

 

...and finally, if you attended our event we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did; we hope you will join us again next summer for our Summer Fete.
