School celebrates 50th anniversary with special assembly

It was a day to remember for pupils and staff at St Edmund Campion Catholic Primary School on Tuesday as it celebrated its 50th anniversary.

Pupils from the schools very first intake of 1963 were invited to attend a party and take part in a special assembly.

Headteacher of the school in Altwood Road, Tricia Opalko, said: "This is a great opportunity for the school not only to celebrate what has been a fabulous 50 years, but to engage everyone who has been involved with the school in the community and make everyone proud."

Anniversary celebrations are set to continue for the rest of the year which will include a commemorative bench unveiling and the planting of a time capsule.
