Pupils and staff from Lakeside School were delighted to celebrate their 20th birthday on Friday 15th January 2021.

The eventful day saw pupils prepare items to include in a time capsule which was buried in the school grounds; this included artwork, birthday cards, newsletters, photos, and information about the school. To mark the day, pupils were also presented with a birthday badge souvenir to take home as a memento of the day.

Classrooms were full of cheer as each class enjoyed parties in the afternoon, and everyone enjoyed tucking into parts of a cake which was a replica of the school building and grounds.

Teaching Assistant, Sue Bagot, Lakeside’s longest-serving member of staff and part of the founding team had the privilege of cutting the cake with the newest and youngest pupil, who has only been at Lakeside for a week.
