The first of June will see staff, pupils, parents and carers and community members at Inveraray Primary School celebrate a double jubilee. Not only will they celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, but also the school’s Golden Jubilee year.
Councillor Michael Breslin, Lead Councillor for Education and Lifelong Learning said, “I’m delighted that Inveraray Primary School is marking such a special milestone during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year.
“The school was formally opened as ‘Inveraray Grammar Junior Secondary School’ by Michael Noble, Esq, Member of Parliament for Argyll on Friday 25 May 1962. It’s great to see that some fifty years later, the school continues to thrive, grow, evolve and achieve such high standards of education. I’d encourage as many people as possible to join staff, pupils and parents at the school to mark this special occasion.”
The Primary 6-7 class has planned the afternoon’s celebrations with support from school staff and the Parent Council. Invited guests will be treated to a regal parade before lunch and will then take part in the Formal Reopening of the school as designed by the pupils. The afternoon will also include activities for the children as well as the opportunity for tours of the school and grounds and a photographic display of past events held at the school.
Past pupils and community members are all welcome to attend from 12.45pm to share in the festivities. Those who would like to attend the event should let the school know by calling 01499 302218.
