FRIEZLAND PRIMARY School wants locals to get in touch with fond memories of their time there as they celebrate their 100-year anniversary.
The school is collecting anecdotes, stories and photographs from its opening in 1915 right up to the current day and these will be displayed on a memory wall at the school during June.
To help build a full picture of the school’s history and heritage, headteacher Mrs Meadham is asking more people to get in touch with their stories and photographs.
She said: “We want to spread the word far and wide. Whether you still live across the road from the school or emigrated to the furthest point on the map; if you left last year or decades ago, we want to hear everyone’s story of their time here.”
To celebrate the centennial year, the school is holding a number of fun family events open to everyone, including a family fun day on 13 June with brass bands, old-fashioned games, a barbecue and raffles.
Money raised will assist with a refurbishment of the school hall, which is the centre of the school life and also widely used by the community.
The school is also looking for project sponsors and supporters to assist with their DIY SOS project to transform the hall.
If anyone would like to get involved with the project please get in touch with the school by calling: 01457 872601. You can also visit their website http://friezlandschool.co.uk or find them on Facebook or Twitter @Freizland100
