Pupils learn all about their school’s past
CHILDREN were on hand to show the Mayor of Whittlesey all about their school’s history at a new anniversary exhibition.
Pupils from Alderman Jacobs Primary School welcomed Mayor of Whittlesey, Councillor Derek Stebbing, to the official opening of their school’s 50th anniversary display at the school in Drybread Road last Friday.
Some of the items on show from the school’s history included an old typewriter, which the Mayor tested out with pupils.
Also on show was a 1960s vintage radio.
The exhibition links in with a display of memorabilia and artefacts dating from the 1960s at Whittlesey Museum, in Market Street.
It is open to the public on June 28 from 9am to 11am; July 7 from 12.30pm to 2.30pm; July 13 from 3.30pm to 5.30pm and 1.30pm to 3.30pm on July 20.
