CAPENHURST Grange School has a host of activities lined up over the coming months to celebrate its 50th year.
The special residential school caters for 65 pupils aged 11-16 and they will be taking part in a number of projects between now and July’s anniversary.
Having already started work on a commemorative calendar students planted 25 trees donated by the Woodlands Trust in February.
This month the school is having a sunflower competition with prizes being awarded to pupils whose plant grows the tallest.
The following month sees the release of 50 balloons with messages attached from the pupils, then in May students will make a time capsule and in June they are having a dressing up day.
In July the school will host gathering of former staff and pupils before unveiling of commemorative plaque.
For the new school year in September students will be sporting a new Capenhurst Grange logo sweatshirt designed by Darts of Chester.
Headteacher Graham Stothard said: “This is a momentous anniversary to celebrate.
“The school has catered for many different types of special educational needs over the years. We are looking forward to an exciting and vibrant year to mark our celebrations.”
Current Year 11 pupil Simon Johanson said: “At Capenhurst Grange the lessons are great, I love sleeping in and after school activities.”
