The School's 90th Birthday

A reunion to celebrate the 90th birthday of the school was held on the evening of 4th April 2000.  It was organised by the Meldreth Millennium Committee.  Staff and pupils from that time were joined by 120 ex pupils and staff.

A book was created after the event and is kept at the Primary School.  The pages from the book are shown below, followed by a report on the evening that appeared in the Royston Crow on 21st April 2000.
