Pinchbeck East school's big celebration after half a century in Fennell Road building
Pupils, staff and parents had a huge celebration for the 50th anniversary of the opening of Pinchbeck East Primary School’s premises in Fennell Road.
The school opened a month before Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong set foot on the Moon - and the cultural revolution known as the Swinging Sixties was at its height.
Year 6 pupils and their teachers donned the fashions of the time, there were 50 activities for pupils to enjoy and, for some, the chance to research the school’s history, including a visit to its former site, now the village library.
Head of school Teeny Vayro started the day with a whole school assembly, and also shared the news that she too had her 50th birthday this year.
Executive head teacher Andy Raistrick joined the celebrations.
Mrs Vayro said the school has always tried to stay at the heart of the community.
Currently the school has just over 390 pupils, and the majority live in Pinchbeck.
Mrs Vayro said: "Lots of things are special about Pinchbeck East.
"It's got the community at its heart. We have tried to maintain our village school philosophy of being a part of the community, going out into the community and welcoming the community into the school."
