Several months ago, Mrs Evans made arrangements with Mrs Grimsey for the whole school to watch a performance of Pinocchio by Image Theatre. In preparation for this, Mrs Evans provided the teachers with copies of the book, so that children could be familiarised with the story before the event.
On Tuesday we all enjoyed the performance with Mrs Evans and some invited guests. The production ended with a special 'Pinocchio' song with words by Mrs Evans and also the singing of 'Happy Birthday'. After school, there was a tea party to celebrate with Mrs Evans, her special guests, staff, members of the Pupil Council and some of the children she has regularly worked with. Refreshments were kindly provided and served by the Parents' Association, including a special 90th Birthday Cake. Two books of birthday messages, from the children, were presented by Ollie and Fable (Chair and Vice Chair of the Pupil Council) something which delighted Mrs Evans.
Mrs Evans loved her celebration and will be back in school shortly to speak to the children.
Thank you to everyone who made the event a great success.
