To mark this occasion Kells and Connor Primary held a special anniversary tea last week.

Staff and pupils dressed up in 1940s clothing at the party.

The school held a fair on June 11, when past pupils and parents were able to view the school and a large display of old photographs prepared by members of Kells and Connor Primary School Parent Teacher Association.

This followed on from a special concert held in Connor Presbyterian Church which took place in April.
