The school celebrated this anniversary in style on Friday 2nd May with pupils, staff, Governors, friends and some colleagues from the past. The day started with balloons being tied to the railings to surprise the children as they entered school. Many thanks to Father Ian for organising the Church service in the morning where we gave thanks for the successes and achievements of the school over the past 50 years.

The children enjoyed a picnic lunch followed by traditional party games in the afternoon. Our visitors enjoyed looking at old photographs and memorabilia before sitting down to lunch with the staff. Bishop Tony supported the School Council in planting poppies to mark the 100th Anniversary of World War One.

Congratulations to the children whose cake designs were chosen for our birthday cake – it was fantastic and incorporated many symbols representing Headlands School. We hope the children liked the commemorative mug given as a gift to each child to mark the occasion and generously donated by Friends of Headlands.

Headlands is a special school and the lovely day experienced by everyone on Friday was a real pleasure to be part of. Congratulations Headlands and here’s to the next 50 golden years.
