Delighted pupils and staff at a Suffolk primary school marked their 50th birthday celebrations in style.
Five decades after St Mary’s C of E Primary School in Hadleigh was officially opened by Bishop Leslie Brown in 1968, all-signing, all-dancing performers kicked off a day of festivities last week.
During a special assembly on the day itself – March 15 – each class presented work they had put together about the special occasion.
Fifty balloons were used by Year 1 (Oak Class) to make a large hot air balloon sculpture, with their memories of the school in the basket.
Diary entries were also penned by Year 6 (Willow Class) as if they had been there on the day.
