As part of the second term commemorations, all of the school's 564 pupils and 54 staff gathered on the rugby field to form a huge "110" numeral, pictured here.
To commemorate its 110th anniversary this year, Laddsworth Primary School in Hilton is celebrating with one or two memorial events every term.
"Work hard and play hard" is one of the mottos that the new principal of a local primary school brings with him to his new position.
Gavin Lambooy (47) took up the post of principal of Laddsworth Primary School in Hilton at the start of the second term. He was previously deputy headmaster of Merchiston Boys' Preparatory School in the city.
The range of 110th anniversary merchandise pictured here is available from the Laddsworth school office. See Mrs Rajah for order forms and goods. The costs are as follows:

Laddsworth Primary School in Hilton celebrated its 110th anniversary in early March. As part of its commemorations, all of the school's 564 pupils walked the short distance from the school to the garden of remembrance at the Hilton Anglican Church. There they laid flowers on the memorial stone of the school's founder, Daisy Ladds, whose remains are interred there. Later they celebrated with a sweet treat in the form of celebration cakes for each grade.
