THE celebrations of a schools silver anniversary concluded with a plaque unveiling and a Christmas fete.

Dignitaries, parents and staff gathered to celebrate Greenacres Primary Schools 50th birthday.

On the day, a commemorative plaque was unveiled and the yearly Christmas fair raised money to go towards extra curricular activities for the pupils.

Eltham MP, Clive Efford, and Greenwich Mayor, Councillor Jagir Sekhon, unveiled the memorial which celebrated the millennium and the schools favourite patron Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

The Christmas carnival stalls, tombolas, lucky dips and face painting raised more than £400 to go towards excursions and fun days for the schools students.

The schools senior administration officer, Linda Whipp, who organised the day, said: This was the finale of our 50th birthday celebrations, following a school reunion last month.

More than 50 people turned up for the short plaque-unveiling ceremony and most stayed on for the fair. It was a great day and a wonderful time was had by all.
