On Monday 17th December, we were delighted to welcome Cllr Judith Skinner, the Mayor of Boston, into school, along with her husband, Cllr Paul Skinner and our previous head teacher, Mr Martin Lister, to start the schools 50th birthday celebrations for the year.
The Mayor planted a special Hawthorn Tree outside of the school entrance and unveiled a plaque to commemorate this as well as touring the school and staying to cut a special 50th cake and for an informal drinks' reception with staff and governors. A new bench, which has been donated by Mr Lister and Mr Kelwick, now resides outside the entrance doors as a present to the school and for anyone to use it. Cllr Skinner attended the school when it first opened back in 1968/69 and it has been an important part of the Skinner's family life. Later in the year, we are looking forward to welcoming the Cllr's Skinner's back along with Matt Warman MP and Mr Lister for the schools 50th birthday week. To commemorate this special year, the school are selling limited edition 50th anniversary Hawthorn Tree teddy bears (£6.50), PE bags (£3.70), Pens (£1) and Bookmarks (£1.10). These are on sale now and will be located in the entrance foyer.
