The programme included song, verse and musical items and a previous member of the teaching staff, Mrs Marie Mewha, spoke to the packed audience during the night.

Mrs Mewha was interviewed by her grandson Lewis who also compered the evening along with fellow pupil Ella McKay.

Mrs Mewha, who had served on the staff under all the previous principals, explained to the children how different school life was many years ago.

The school will next hold a Fair on June 10 when a large selection of photographs and other memorabilia will be on display.
