Party time for school’s 50th

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS - KAREN BRITTON

CHIL­DREN cel­e­brated the 50th an­niver­sary of their school with a grand street party.

Pupils and staff at Up­ton Pri­ory School marked the birth­day with ac­tiv­i­ties and a cel­e­bra­tion lunch.

Year Three chil­dren cre­ated a time cap­sule and wrote about what chil­dren will learn in 50 years’ time, as well as mak­ing 50th badges.

Year Four pupils made 50th bunting to be dis­played at the sum­mer fair while Year Five stu­dents made 60s neck­laces and the old­est chil­dren in Year Six made a school crest.

And the whole school came to­gether for the birth­day street party lunch.

Emma Bur­nage, act­ing head­teacher, said: “The chil­dren and staff all had an in­cred­i­ble time cel­e­brat­ing our 50th an­niver­sary. We are all ex­tremely proud to be a part of Up­ton Pri­ory School and be­ing able to share this his­toric mo­ment to­gether was very spe­cial.”

Also on the day there was a visit by Par­a­lympian dis­cus thrower Bev­er­ley Jones.

The chil­dren com­pleted ex­er­cises through the day as part of a fit­ness chal­lenge to raise more than £1,130 in aid of Bev­er­ley’s train­ing and also for school equip­ment.
