The school has recently sponsored our former pupil Victoria Muwanga through the charity East African Playgrounds to travel to Uganda and build a children’s playground. Victoria then came back to school to show the children her work with a fantastic inspiring powerpoint.
As a part of our 60th celebrations we invited back all our former staff and students. We were overwhelmed by the incredible turnout. The former students were able to meet up with each other and their former teachers and take a tour of the modern school and the amazing history diplays Megan Laine has created specially. The event was such a success that we plan to do it again in 5 years time. If you are a former pupil or teacher you can register via the website, clicking on Alumni and leaving your email address for future communications.
We recently celebrated our 60th birthday after humble beginnings in 1958 with only 7 pupils. Today we have a wonderful home after 60 years of struggle to maintain the school financially and to have a good place to live.
We were lucky enough to track down 3 of the original pupils who joined us for our celebration, two of whom were daughters of the original Head teacher, Peggi Hardfeldt. Rosie Leefe, the daughter of our founder Thomas Tull was with us as were two of our former headteachers Janet Meyer and Pat Gabrielsson. It was fantastic to share our day with so many people that made the school the great success it is today.
