The children enjoyed a fun-packed day of historically themed activities on Thursday to mark the 350th Anniversary of our school. We were even treated to a special visit and talk by the Mayor of Chard, the Town Crier and the Mace Bearer! Our anniversary cake was cut by the Mayor who also re-enacted the handing over of the keys of the school just as they were 350 years ago when the building was gifted by the Symes family to be used for educational purposes.
Lunch was a highlight and was enjoyed ‘party style’ complete with sandwiches, sausage rolls, jelly and cake! A carousel of activities were run throughout the day including maypole dancing, skittles, ‘village football’, cooking, historical writing and art activities. To mark this very special milestone, commemorative pebbles were painted by all of our children to be assembled to form a plaque on the chapel lawn – we can’t wait to see the finished piece in place!
Thanks to all of the teaching staff for organising this very memorable and enjoyable day for the school. A very Happy Anniversary to us!
