Middleton School were delighted to be joined by some special VIPs on their 15 year anniversary, to help staff and pupils commemorate and reflect on what the school has achieved since it opened in 2004 and to imagine what the school will be like in 2034.
Bearemy from the Build a Bear workshop, MK Mayor and former Governor, Sam Crooks and previous Headteacher Jane Miller came together with pupils from the school council to mark the occasion by burying a time capsule filled to the brim with memories and messages. The ceremony followed an assembly, in which current pupils heard all about the experiences of former pupils and viewed past footage from the official school opening. Three Teaching Assistants who have worked at the school since day one were presented with flowers in recognition of their dedication and commitment.
Headteacher Rachel Roberts said:
“We are all so proud of our school and this 15 year milestone has given us the opportunity to celebrate its history by burying a capsule in the school grounds. The capsule, which will be unearthed by future pupils in another 15 years, contained written memories by pupils and staff, video footage, toys and local and national newspapers. I am sure these will be of great interest to those lucky enough to dig it up in the future.
“Middleton’s current pupils were intrigued by the history of the school and by the many memories they were able to share in during a special assembly. The school continues to go from strength to strength and we are very much looking forward to seeing what the next 15 years hold for us.”
