Neroche pupils prepare to celebrate school's 40th anniversary
10:00am Sunday 6th October 2013 in Somerset
CHILDREN at Neroche Primary School are enjoying finding out about the school’s history, as they prepare to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
They have been talking to parents who were former pupils and looking at items for the school’s exhibition, being collated by chairman of governors David Pugh.
He said: “I have been amazed by the number of past pupils and staff who have contacted me with information, and how much interest this is generating.
“It will be a wonderful celebration of a great community school.”
Events and activities have now been finalised and there should be something to appeal to everyone wanting to join in the celebrations.
There will be a ‘through the decades’ quiz at the school on November 6 from 7.30pm, a buffet and dance on November 8 at Ilminster Bowling Club, starting at 7.30pm, and an open day for the community and past staff and pupils on November 10 from 11am.
Anyone interested in the quiz or buffet/dance should call Mike Wiles at the school on 01460-52664.
A birthday book will be available at the school for anyone who wants to add their own memories.
Mr Pugh added: “I have already had messages for the book from people unable to travel for the celebrations and anyone else who wishes to send a message can do so to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make sure it is included.”
