MT Claremont Primary School celebrated its centenary birthday last Friday.
Children dressed in 1917 period costumes and enjoyed cake as well as a special assembly with performances by the choir instrumental music students.
They also took part in activities reflecting the early years and a picnic lunch with old-world games.
Deputy principal Libby Johnson said the school had seen many changes over its 100 years.
“It opened on August 13, 1917 with eight students and now comprises 212 students from kindergarten to Year 6,” she said.
“It was formerly Graylands Primary School and it had a Migrant Education Centre, an Intensive English Centre and now a PEAC Centre.”
Students have collected memorabilia for a time capsule and studied different decades from 1917 to 2017 and the research will be on display for the school open day on October 22.
Past and current students and families are invited to attend.
