SCHOOL 100 YEAR CELEBRATIONS
The school year 2008/2009 marked the 100 year centenary for Beaconsfield Primary School. To celebrate this special occasion we had a "Victorian Era" theme week in school with classes taking part in old style lessons and other activities from Victorian times.
These celebrations and activities were also the major focus for our International Evening event which took place on Friday 3rd July where each class provided some demonstrations and entertainment based upon their "Victorian Era" theme work.
We also created a time capsule that was buried into the wall of the school during the summer holidays when we had construction work taking place. This time capsule will be ready to be opened in 2058 for the 150th celebrations of the school.
We made a school DVD to commemorate this special event and on Tuesday 23rd June we had a film crew in school to complete filming in each class. For this day all children came to school dressed in the way that Victorian children would have done.
Also on Tuesday 23rd June we invited parents and carers to come along to school to join us for a picnic lunch event
