Special Event - 40th Birthday Celebrations

14 March 2008

On Friday 14th March, we celebrated the 40th birthday of our school building.

The celebrations ran throughout the day and started with music from across the decades. Each class chose a song from the last 40 years to perform. We were treated to renditions of I'm a Believer (Larches), Tiger Feet (Beeches), YMCA (Poplars), Thriller (Willows), The Locomotion (Rowans), Teletubbies (Cedars), Bob the Builder (Lower School) and Is This the Way to Amarillo (Lower School and then everyone else, conga-style).

As red is the colour of a 40th anniversary (ruby), we had that as a theme but the children could also wear fancy dress or non-uniform.

As with all good celebrations, the day involved a good amount of food, including a range of red cup cakes and a street party lunch with paper hats.

After the refuel, the children, staff and friends and families who had joined us were able to dance the afternoon away with DJ Graham (Chairperson of the Friends of Langley School). Everyone enjoyed the dancing competitions and by the time we had drawn the raffle at the end of the day, we were all ready for a good sleep!

Many thanks to everyone who made this event such a success.
