A school has celebrated its 100th birthday with cake and party hats.
West End Primary School in Oswaldtwistle celebrated the landmark on Monday, March 17, with pupils taking part in a fun day of crafts, games and a disco.
The children were treated to a party lunch and some birthday cake.
The Mayor, Coun Judith Addison, and Mayoress Coun Kathleen Pratt attended a special assembly and were given a guided tour of the school to see how it has changed over the last 100 years. Headteacher James McBride said they were planning a number of events over the course of the year to commemorate the anniversary.
These include a 1914-themed day and visits to local museums to find out more about the lives of children in 1914. They are also trying to make contact with former pupils.
Mr McBride said: “Staff are really keen to invite expupils into school to talk to the children about school life in their day. If ex-pupils could get in touch we’d love to hear from them.”
The school is also planning to put together a history book and is collecting old photographs.
These can be sent to the school by post or email head@ westendcps.lancs.sch.uk.
