Pupils cel­e­brate 60th an­niver­sary

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Train­ing -

Nos­tal­gia was in the air as an Air­drie school’s 60th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions got into full swing.

To help mark St Ed­ward’s Pri­mary’s di­a­mond an­niver­sary, en­thralled pupils took a step back in time to re­search the his­tory of their school and its sur­round­ing com­mu­nity.

As well as com­mem­o­rat­ing its sixth full decade, 2018 is also the fi­nal year the school will be sit­u­ated at its orig­i­nal South Big­gar Road home be­fore chil­dren and staff move into a new shared cam­pus with Toll­brae Pri­mary next April.

In an at­tempt to ex­am­ine the very best of each decade since St Ed­ward’s opened its doors, young­sters fo­cused on the trends, tech­nol­ogy, fash­ion, movies and mu­sic that cap­tured the imag­i­na­tion of gen­er­a­tions.

The tal­ented kids then de­signed their own mod­els, art work and dis­play boards based on their find­ing and had a blast look­ing out old pho­to­graphs from the school’s past.

The an­niver­sary pro­gramme will con­tinue later this month with a“Wee Blast from the Past”show.

Be sure to get next week’s Ad­ver­tiser when we’ll fea­ture more cel­e­bra­tory pic­tures.
