“We hope it gives you a chance to catch up with former colleagues and relive your Someries days”

A Luton school will be holding a 'Golden Fete' to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

Someries Juniors School on Wigmore Lane first opened as a new school 50 years ago. Now the school has plans to commemorate the occasion by inviting current and past pupils and families to reunite and enjoy a family fun day.

The Golden Fete will take place on July 1 from 2pm to 4pm.

The Fete will feature a fire engine, a police car, and a gallery of old pictures in the school hall in addition to other events. Former pupils can also tour the building to see how the school looks now, and can claim a Golden Badge of their own.

On the school's outdoor stage, the school choir will be performing a variety of songs including an ABBA medley. Ex-pupils will also take part in dance and music performances.

A spokesperson for the school said: “I have been really pleased to see the excitement this has generated among former members of the school community and the joy that they have shared in remembering their school days together.

"I hope that the event is, for them, a day to bring back many wonderful memories and to rekindle friendships that go right back to their early years. Someries has always had a strong reputation as a friendly community school and it fantastic to be able to commemorate this occasion with so many members of that community.”

MP Rachel Hopkins is set to open the event by raising a specially commissioned jubilee flag on the school field. The MP for Luton South said: “I’m pleased to have been invited to Someries Junior School’s Golden Anniversary Fete, which celebrates 50 years of the school serving its local community.

"I am delighted to have been asked to open the event by raising the flag – which has been designed by one of the pupils. I look forward to seeing the performances and the exhibition of photos from the last 50 years of Someries Junior School.”
