PUPILS marked a double celebration by cutting an oversized cake.

Youngsters at Spalding Primary School took part in a variety of activities, including crown making and kite-flying, to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee – and tied their red, white and blue-themed day in with a celebration to mark the 30th annivesary of the school moving to its current home in Woolram Wygate.

A huge cake, made for the event by Jessie Shields, wife of a former caretaker who retired a few years sho, also depicted the two celebrations and was cut by members of the school council during a special celebratory assembly before it was shared out between the rest of the pupils and staff.

And the tasty treats didn’t end there as the children all enjoyed a picnic lunch on the school field.

The day of celebrations was rounded off in the afternoon by the Home School Association’s annual summer fair, which raised £1,200 towards buying new play equipment for children to enjoy in the playground.

Headteacher Diane Scott said: “The school has grown considerably since it first moved to this site from Westlode Street 30 years ago, and it continues to grow.

“It was lovely day and the children had a lot of fun celebrating the two events before having a relaxing time at the summer fair.”

The school is now collecting photographs from the past 30 years, which could go on display or on the website.
