2012 is the 40th anniversary of the opening of our school here in Lache, Chester. Originally St. Francis’ School in Cuppin Street, our School Log Book from the time records that the new school opened in April 1972 as ‘ St. Clare’s Roman Catholic Aided Combined and Middle School’.
The Log Book makes very interesting reading, and records many significant events, not just for the school, but for the local and wider community.
We also have a ‘Punishment Book’ for St. Francis’ School dating from 1928!
To celebrate the occasion we are working with all our children to research the history of the last 40 years, and this will culminate in a special Open Afternoon, to be held on Thursday 6th December starting at 1 p.m.
Any past pupils, parents and staff of St Clare’s or St. Francis’ are warmly invited to join us for this occasion.
A 70’s Day and Disco will be held for current pupils and staff on Friday 7th December.
Please phone the school on 01244 981110 for further details.
