Ferrar's Academy 60th Birthday Party
We recently celebrated the schools 60th birthday with the Mayor of Luton Councillor Tahir Malik, governors, local head teachers, our Time for Tea guests, Andy from St Hugh’s church, ex teachers and staff.
Children came to school dressed in their special celebration clothes. We started our celebrations with an assembly to the children and our special visitors. We then made our way to the playground in the afternoon where we treated our guests to an array of dances throughout the decades. Year 2 learnt dances from the 1960’s, Year 1 children performed dances from the 1970’s and finally year R children danced to songs from the 1980’s. As we moved forward into the 1990’s the teachers performed and dressed as the Spice Girls! We finished off our showcase of dancing with the whole school dancing to songs from the 2000’s.
Councillor Malik then delivered his speech to the whole school and guests before we then enjoyed an afternoon tea in the sun and sang happy birthday.
We would like to express our thanks to everyone who attended and helped us celebrate what a special place Ferrars Academy is. A special thanks goes to St Hugh’s church who kindly wrote a poem as a gift for the school.
We will be holding other celebrations throughout the year.
