To mark the anniversary, West Walton Community School organised a church service and street party lunch before pupils danced the afternoon away as a band played.

St Mary’s Chruch was packed as the whole school and guests took part in a morning service.

Then came a street party, with many feasting on the mouth-watering meal the school cooks had prepared.

After the pupils sang happy birthday to the school they all had a piece of special birthday cake, which was made by Joc Bays.

The celebration culminated in an exhausting afternoon of Ceilidh Dancing (a traditional Gaelic dance).
