Evelyn Community Primary Celebrates 50 years

by Emily Maguire

Evelyn Community Primary School in Prescot is celebrating its Golden Anniversary this year.

The school first opened its doors on Tuesday 4th September 1973, with only 83 pupils and 3 teachers. Over the last 50 years, the school has gone from strength to strength and now has over 250 pupils on roll and 13 teachers.

A day of celebration took place on Friday 17th November, with past staff, pupils, governors and friends of the school invited.  The day also included the grand opening of a new ‘Science Hub’ at the school.

Headteacher, Sandra Macleod said “The day was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our heritage, and we look forward to an exciting future.”

All children and guests were presented with a golden owl badge (the school’s emblem) in commemoration of this special event.
