Parkfield Primary School is reaching out to its present and past teachers and students to leave a lasting mark on the school grounds as it commemorate its 25th anniversary.

Deputy principal Zena Dyer said former and current school community members could pay to have their name engraved on a paver, which would then take pride of place outside the block one classrooms.

“We are going to create an outdoor area outside our block one classrooms and then place picnic benches on it, so it will become a commemorative area to celebrate our 25th anniversary,” she said.

“It will become a part of the history of the school, something there to last for however long.”

Those interested can fit up to three lines of text or the years they attended the school on an order form up until June 13.

“We are hoping we will get quite a few – we need at least 100 to get delivery free and we are hoping to get beyond that,” Ms Dyer said.

“We just want to encourage people to participate in the brick-paving drive.”

The school opened at the start of the 1993 school year, but will celebrate its official “birth date” on November 26 with an assembly and the opening of a time capsule buried as part of its 10th anniversary celebrations.

The bricks cost $30 to purchase and can be ordered at www.parkfield.wa.edu.au.
