Damson Wood School celebrates its 50th anniversary

Solihull Editorial 5th Jul, 2017   0

DAMSON Wood Nursery and Infant School Academy celebrated 50 years with a summer street party.

Pupils and staff were joined by members of the Damson Wood community, including past staff, parents and pupils from over the years and took a step back in time to the 1960s.

They wore tie-dye t-shirts and took part in a festival of activities including circus skills and a magic show with Monty the jester.

Photos and memories were displayed and there was an opportunity for everyone to share their fond memories of this long-standing school.

There was also a ceramic damson tree and a willow sculpture, as well as having a golden disco and birthday cake sale, all in celebration of the event.

Miss Hughes, Head of School, said: “This was a true celebration of our school over a long, successful period. As a past pupil myself, I know how much heart there is in our local community and love for our school.

“This was evidenced by the incredible turnout for our celebration evening and we would like to thank everyone who attended for helping to ensure it was a really special event.”

The school have also been raising money for the charity Help Harry Help Others by designing and selling 50th anniversary bracelets.
