PITREAVIE Primary School packed in an extravaganza of activities last week to celebrate their 50th anniversary!

The school opened its doors at Pitcorthie Drive in 1969 and many special events have been planned to mark the milestone.

Pupils have redesigned the school badge and also renamed the school houses after native trees to reflect the heritage of the Pitcorthie estate.

On Thursday, four trees: Pine, Birch, Rowan and Lilac, were all planted for each house in the school grounds.

Dunfermline artist Alan Grieve has delivered workshops with pupils and a mural to reflect 50 years of Pitreavie school was put on display last Friday.

The children have also created a school song called, 'One Big Team', and performed a show called 'Back in Time for School', which reflected songs and events from the 1960s until the present day.

A family quiz night was also held last Tuesday and a Big Breakfast on Wednesday with food reflecting our changing tastes over the decades.

The school also celebrated with a BBQ, ice cream van and of course, birthday cake!

Debbie Broadley, headteacher, said: "It was an exhausting but exciting week!

"It was absolutely a community event with past staff and pupils all joining in and we also enjoyed an exhibition filled with memorabilia from past years.

"The final concert was fabulous and really well supported. The mural is up on display and every child will get a chance to add some colour.

"Thank you to everyone who has helped us prepare for this week.

"We appreciate all the class photos that have been sent in by past pupils and staff.

"The Parent Council have worked exceptionally hard on projects, Beatbox helped us write our school song and Alan Grieve has been supported by the Carnegie Trust to produce our commemorative mural.

"All the children got a goody bag that included a copy of the school song, a commemorative postcard and a slice of birthday cake."
