School event news

This week we are celebrating Devonshire’s 50th anniversary.

The school was first opened on 29th April 1968, 50 years ago. It opened with 153 pupils who were organised into 5 classes. We now have 710 pupils organised into 23 classes. When the school opened there were 7 staff, now there are over 100 staff. Devonshire has changed a lot over the last 50 years; not only is it a lot bigger but it also has wonderful new buildings and facilities. However, what has not changed is that it continues to be a very important part of the local community.

This week, the children have been involved in a variety of anniversary activities. These include making a collage using the 50ps that you kindly donated last week, having a whole school photo taken (with all 710 children and 100 staff looking at the camera at the same time!), planting flowers to mark out 1968 and 2018, learning about a decade from the last 50 years and on Friday there is a 1960s themed school lunch.

On Friday, our celebrations culminate with an event for Devonshire families.

After school, Devonshire families are welcome to join us on the field as we continue the celebrations. Each year group will be performing the song that they have been learning as part of their work throughout the week and families can join in with the activities that the classes have set up. Thank you to Mrs Love and her working party who have been planning and organising our anniversary celebrations.
