We have chosen Thursday November 9th for our school’s 50 th birthday ‘day’. Although Holcombe Brook first opened its doors in May 1967 we have decided to celebrate during the Autumn Term as this is when most new pupils would have started the academic year. We have made many connections already with past pupils and all classes planned a 50th birthday topic to start September. On Thursday there will be an assembly at 9.30 am to which any parent or past pupil is invited. We have a short drama sketch to share, a fashion parade of outfits from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s and a cake competition to judge. The PTA will be serving tea and cakes following assembly.
