TATTENHALL pupils marked the school’s 40th birthday with an historic walk from their modern school to the site of their original school in the village.
Tattenhall Park Primary School pupils celebrated the school’s special occasion with an assembly and an afternoon walk.
High Sheriff of Cheshire Diana Barbour opened the reunion celebrations. More than 120 past pupils, members of staff and old friends joined in the fun.
Mrs Barbour, who enjoyed being taken on a tour of the school by Year 6 school council members, said: “I am so honoured to be your guest at your 40th anniversary celebrations. Thank you all for being so welcoming.”
The school also invited John Stevens, director of children’s services at Cheshire West and Chester, to the school to celebrate their day. He talked to the pupils and looked at their 10-year plan for the school.
The school band, led by teacher Emma Clark, delighted the audience with an accomplished performance.
Mrs Clark said: “It’s such a wonderful opportunity for all Tattenhall Park children that they can learn to play a musical instrument completely free of charge for a whole year so no wonder our band is fantastic!”
Headteacher Laura Noble said: “This year has been outstanding for us in many ways and just this week we learned that we are now in the Sunday Times top 100 schools in the country – this is truly the icing on our 40th birthday cake.
“This follows on from our success last December when the Daily Telegraph placed us as the top school in Cheshire.
“These are fantastic results for our children, staff, parents, governors and whole community.”
