School marks 60th birthday

A popular Walney school is marking a milestone 70 years of educating pupils this week by turning back the clock.

South Walney Infant and Nursery School will celebrate on Friday (May 17th) with a family event in the afternoon where pupils and staff will dress in 1950s attire.

This is followed by an invitation to past pupils and staff to return to the Amphitrite Street school to catch up over a cup of tea and share memories from their time there.

Headteacher Becs Ensoll said everyone was looking forward to the occasion.

“Our pupils have always taken great pride in their community and this is a way of inviting everyone connected with the school in to see how we have changed over the decades.

“There have been many positive developments at our wonderful school, yet its ethos of providing a safe, welcoming and happy place where everyone is valued remains the same.

“Ofsted recently recognised how our children thrive in the ‘heart of this island community’ and it will also be a chance for us all to celebrate our special school together.”

“We hope as many people as possible can make it to the drop in from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.”

South Walney Infant and Nursery School is an associate member of South Cumbria Multi-Academy Trust.
