On Saturday 16th March, Bradley Stoke’s Wheatfield Primary School opened its doors to ex-pupils, families and members of staff for an open day to celebrate the school’s 20th anniversary.
Over 200 people attended the event and took the opportunity to explore the school and catch up with old friends and colleagues.
The hall was decorated with pictures from throughout the school’s history and videos of key events were played in classrooms.
The day was organised by Hazel Boyes, a teaching assistant who has been in post for 19 years.
It forms part of a series of events throughout the school year to mark the 20th anniversary.
The culmination of these events will be ‘Wheatfest’ on Saturday 13th July, which will be a day of activities, rides and performances to celebrate this important time for the school.
