A Spen school is on the lookout for memorabilia as it prepares to celebrate half a century since its opening.

Scholes Village Primary School was opened in 1964, and has since educated generations in the Spen Valley.

It celebrates its 50th year next June, and governors want to make it an anniversary to remember for everyone at the school.

The school is planning an exhibition and is after any bits of memorabilia or photographs from down the years to help it celebrate the milestone.

School governor Becki Freeman said: “We want to get as many people, pictures and pieces of memorabilia together as possible for this event

“Any memorabilia, or anything that you think could be used as part of a photo exhibition, please send to the school.

“We greatly appreciate any help that is given and hope as many people as possible will all be able to join us in the celebration next year.”

Becki said that the school played an important part in the community and would love alumni from its opening year to come forward with their stories.

“Schools have changed a lot over the years,” she said. “It would be really interesting for the pupils to find out about how the school used to be.”
