Pupils and teachers of a Hatfield school have been partying and climbing high to celebrate 70 years of learning.

To celebrate its 70th anniversary Howe Dell Primary School pupils took to climbing, archery, dance, and flying kites as part of a ‘Reach for the Stars’ themed week - which aimed to get them motivated.

The school, which moved its premises from Old Rectory Drive to The Runway in 2007, hired a climbing tower for the celebrations.

Headteacher Debra Massey said: “We celebrated many generations which provided aspiration and excitement across the entire school.”

One pupil’s nan, called Lisa, made a cake especially for the occasion. The children also dressed up as what they wanted to be when they’re older, including doctors, chefs, surgeons, detectives and more. Shugz, from Year 2, said: “I loved seeing the teachers dressed up.”
