Teacher Lisa Miller said the school would hold an assembly on June 27, the official centenary date for the school’s opening, and was in the process of planning a performance to highlight major events from the last century.

A main celebration will be held on November 1.

‘We are hoping to have displays set up, classrooms open and key speakers for the main celebration,’ she said.

‘We are asking that all former staff, students, parents and members of the Spearwood community come along and catch up with old friends and share some of their stories of days gone by at Spearwood.’

As part of the centenary the school is aiming to collect information or memorabilia in the form of photos, books, uniforms, sporting trophies or anything that could be used in displays for the open day.

The school is also looking for people who may have some interesting stories to tell about Spearwood Primary School and what it was like in years past.
