PREPARATIONS are underway for Damson Wood Nursery and Infant School Academy 50th anniversary celebrations this summer.
There will be a children’s street party to mark the golden anniversary and staff and parents have already started getting things in place.
The Stockwell Rise school first opened its doors to pupils on June 12 1967.
Emily Hughes, Head of School, was a pupil at the school herself, along with other current staff members who have been both parents and pupils over the years.
Miss Hughes said: “I have very fond memories of my time at Damson Wood and look forward to celebrating this wonderful achievement with past and present members of our school community.”
The school are keen to hear from past staff and pupils who may have memories or photographs of their time at Damson Wood and invite them to email [email protected] and share memories.
They would also be keen to know if any past pupils have ended up doing exciting things both in Solihull and around the world.
Damson Wood is part of the Central Schools Trust, in partnership with Balsall Common Primary School, who celebrated their 100th Anniversary in 2013.
