Youngsters from Peatmoor Primary School celebrated the school’s tenth anniversary with a week of activity on the theme of rising to the challenge of striving to do better by enjoying learning.
Children went on voyages of scientific discovery around the lagoon, made a giant school logo out of Lego, drummed and danced to an African beat, held a sports day and welcomed parents for a tenth year fete.
Headteacher Andrew Henstridge said, “Peatmoor is a very happy school with a strong sense of purpose. It’s been a busy ten years and I’m sure all the pupils who have attended and moved on will fondly remember their days here. Our aim is to challenge children of all abilities so that they will try their hardest, whilst at the same time have a great deal of stimulating fun in their learning”
