Bury Catholic Prep School celebrates 70th anniversary
3:52pm Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
THE party mood was in full flow when Bury Catholic Prep School hosted a double celebration at the weekend.
Around 160 guests enjoyed the fun, sun and barbecue at the Manchester Road school on Sunday to mark its 70th anniversary and the new intake of 23 youngsters to the nursery.
The barbecue party, which also included a balloon race, proved a hit and was organised by the school’s Parents Teachers and Friends Association.
Headteacher Mrs Anne Dean said: “We were so lucky to have such good weather at this time of the year and it was a fabulous party. It was a combination of the PTFA event to welcome new parents and the school’s 70th birthday. We had a very good turn-out with 160 tickets sold.”
This was the first major event to mark Bury Catholic Prep’s platinum anniversary and more celebrations are in the pipeline.
Its school council is designing a special commemorative mosaic and a competition is being run to allow pupils to decide how the 70th birthday should be marked.
The school caters for around 130 pupils.
