50s style party at St Michael and All Angels School
St Michael and All Angels Catholic Primary School (formally Holy Angels School) in Kirkby celebrated their 60th anniversary with a 50s style party.
The school started the celebrations with a Mass at St Michael and All Angels church. The school opened in 1956 before the church.
Pupils then celebrated together by reliving the 1950’s era. Children and staff joined together by wearing clothes from the 1950’s.
Headteacher Miss A Bowman, said: “Each class had the opportunity to go to the ‘hop’, whilst using the juke box that played all the classic hits from the day.
“Children also took part in lessons about the 1950’s, in addition to a singing competition and most enjoyably a hula hoop competition!
“It was a special day for the school community to celebrate the successes of teaching and nurturing children for the past 60 years”.
