Sir.–This academic year, Old Basing Infant school is celebrating its 40th birthday.
We have planned a week of celebrations beginning on Monday, January 14. We are finding many ways to celebrate this special anniversary of our school’s construction and are hoping to find members of the community who are willing to come and share some of their memories with pupils during this week.
We are also asking whether anyone has any old photographs of the school, its pupils or the village itself. If they would be willing to send us a copy of these either by email or post, they would also be greatly appreciated. We hope to make this a very special occasion for all and see it as a wonderful opportunity for members of the community to be involved in school life.
If you would like to help us celebrate in any way, please contact the school office on 01256 325704 or email lydia.watts@oldbasing. hants.sch.uk.
