TO celebrate its 110th anniversary this year, Laddsworth Primary School in Hilton has held a commemorative event of some kind each term. To mark the start of Spring and celebrate the anniversary, the school recently planted 11 indigenous trees along the boundary of the sports field, once for each decade of the school's history.
