BOW BRICKHILL FIRST SCHOOL

CELEBRATION OF THE FIRST 125 YEARS
11 DECEMBER 2003

Founded in 1878, the school celebrated its 125th anniversary with a Victorian day which included a church service.   Click here for extracts from the school log produced for the centenary.

The weather was not kind and in heavy rain the children, teachers and parents walked up the hill where Father Christmas paused in his busy schedule to give them encouragement.
Amongst those in splendid period costume was this gentleman.

The assembled company queued in the rain to enter All Saints, and it was was standing room only in the church.
The Rector introduced the service which was then conducted by the teachers and pupils

Traditional carols were sung as well as a medley of Victorian songs.  The children explained the origins of many of our Christmas traditions and led the prayers.
The staff distinguished themselves with a fine redition of "The Twelve Days of Christmas".

And like any birthday the school had a birthday cake!
