Celebrations as school reaches 50th birthday
STAFF at a primary school are appealing to past students and teachers for help as it approaches its 50th birthday.
Marlborough Primary School, on Tytherington Drive, will reach its landmark anniversary in May. To celebrate the school is opening its ‘Festival on The Field’ event up to the whole community.
It will include performances by the children, an exhibition of how Marlborough has evolved through the decades, a bbq and refreshments.
Antonia Pollard, clerical assistant at the school, is appealing on behalf of the school for past parents, teachers and pupils to share their memories, photographs and paraphernalia collected over the years.
She said: “This year, the theme for the Festival is “50 years of Marlborough” and we would like to open the event to the whole of our community.
“We would like to appeal to past Marlborough families to send in any memorabilia they have of the school no matter how old or how recent; we would love to display it all!
“To finish off the festivities, we will have a range of activities themed across the decades for everybody to enjoy.
“Visitors will be able to purchase refreshments including a BBQ and our famous chocolate crunch. Please help us to celebrate this milestone by joining us for this event and sending any photos or memorabilia you have to Marlborough Primary School either by post or drop it off at the school office (please ensure you put your name and a contact number on any item you send in so that we can return it to you afterwards).”
The event is on May 19th on the school field and starts at 1.30pm. Please bring your own camping chairs or picnic blankets to sit on. To find out more call 01625 466414.
Old photographs from the 1960s, 70s and 80s will go on dispaly during the celebration
