Special Visitors Thursday 27th April 2016 (4 images)

On Thursday 27th April 2016 the school welcomed some special visitors. Six ladies, all former pupils who were at the school in its first year during the 1950's had asked if they could see the school in its modern state. Mrs Manley showed them around, visiting the classes and seeing how things have changed since their time here. They shared some fascinating memories and showed us some photographs taken around 1956. Notice in the photographs how the glass wall that used to be at the front of the building has now changed to the brick wall with "Fairwater Primary". Perhaps someone may recognise the names on the back of one of the photographs? It would be great to invite the ladies back to share some more of their school memories!
