Local children celebrate their school with an exhibition

by Laura Johnston

Pupils at Cronton C of E Primary School proudly displayed their work at a mini exhibition celebrating 50 years of the school.

The children have been learning about their school’s history such as how it has grown and changed over the past 50 years, and past pupils and staff members have also been getting involved. They have been sharing their photos and stories from their experiences at the school to join in the celebrations.

Notable memories for the school include being rated outstanding in inspections by SIAMS and Ofsted, the opening of its nursery 20 years ago and past pupil, Beau Dermott, doing the school proud and being a finalist on Britain’s got Talent.

At the exhibition, photos and memorabilia collected over the past 50 years were on display for visitors to understand Cronton C of E Primary School’s story better. Visitors also had the opportunity to go on a tour around the school.

Pupils from the very first intake of the school came along to the event as well as school staff who have not seen all of the great changes the school has gone through.

The exhibition is part of wider celebrations the school is organising later in the year such as a celebration event for current pupils and a ‘50th anniversary’ dinner dance for current and past parents, staff and governors.

As well as the upcoming 50th anniversary, Cronton C of E Primary has another big reason to celebrate – the school has recently been ranked sixth in the top schools in Merseyside.
