Hellesdon school marks Queen Jubilee and 75th anniversary

Families joined together to celebrate a school's 75th anniversary and the Queen's Jubilee.

A week of celebrations at Firside Junior School in Hellesdon culminated with a street party today (Friday).

Members of the community joined in a special Jubilee-themed tea party at the Middletons Lane school.

Headteacher Simon Fisher said: 'It's been a super day and the children really enjoyed it. We all sang Happy Birthday to Firside together.'

During the week, the pupils made clay faces of themselves with sculptor Maggie Campbell. Their designs have now been put on display in the school as a lasting legacy.
