120th Anniversary June 1st 2012
Sciennes Primary School opened in 1892 and celebrated its 120th Anniversary on June 1st 2012 with a birthday party for our current 640 pupils and their families. The street was closed and families were invited to bring their own picnic. An informal reunion for former staff on Thursday 31st May 6pm-8pm in the School Hall and it was wonderful to welcome back so many dear friends of the school. To commemorate the anniversary, an online history was created as well as six instalments of an eBook available in iTunes (see links above).
