Half a century of memorabilia will be displayed on Sunday to celebrate Adam Road Primary School’s 50th anniversary.

Past students, teachers, principals and people who shared a connection with the school will be welcomed back to reminisce and share stories from their time as part of the tight-knit community.

Guests will be taken on a journey through the school’s history with each classroom displaying mementos of both school and world events from each decade from 1967.

A time capsule buried in 1979 will be dug up and footage of a school production filmed in 1988 will be displayed on screens throughout the day.

An informal assembly will be held from 10.30am with past principals, staff and students sharing anecdotes and stories from their time at the school.

With more than 200 people expected to attend, principal Guy Asser said he was looking forward to showcasing how far the school had come in 50 years.

He said a school song recorded on its 25th anniversary would be another main feature, along with more than 300 photos that would also be on display in classrooms.

Event coordinator Christine Hunter said she was confident guests would be impressed by the recently completed nature playground and the growing number of bricks surrounding the school’s flagpole with name-engraved plaques.
