175th Anniversary Celebrations

175th Anniversary Celebrations
Monday, 03 June 2019

We have some very special events planned for our 175th Anniversary Celebration! To celebrate this amazing milestone, we have a week full of festivities planned! Click to see the full article with more information.

We have some VIPs visiting the school to help us celebrate including ex staff members and important members of our local community. Our guests will have a chance to tour the school, share memories with our current pupils, and join our whole school street party picnic lunch out on the field. Humes are making us a cake to share with our guests, and our lovely kitchen will be making cupcakes for all our children.

Later in the week, the children will be taught a Victorian curriculum for a day. Alongside this, children and staff will be dressing up as school child (or staff member) from the history of the school (more details to follow). Each class will take it in turn to participate in our Dance-a-Thon. We hope to reach 175 minutes in total! Each class will also be contributing to a time capsule.

In preparation for the event, we have had a whole school aerial photo taken to mark our 175 years. This will be available for parents to buy very soon, as well as being shared on our social media!
