Yesterday Welwyn St Mary’s held a joint celebration to commemorate the 80th birthday of the school building and the awarding of an “excellent” rating by SIAMS.
SIAMS is the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools – and excellent is the highest grade awarded.
Children studied the history of the school buildings in class and were presented with a giant cake, baked by Katie’s Bakery in Welwyn.
Everyone sang happy birthday and a birthday card was opened.
Headteacher Mary Westley said: “The 80th birthday of our school building has been a wonderful opportunity to teach the children about the changes that have happened since 1939 when the school was built.
