It has been a big year for Kyeemagh Infants School.
After more than a year of campaigning, the little school recently celebrated news that it would be expanded from a K-2 school (kindergarten to Year 2) to a K-6 school.
Those celebrations continued on Saturday, with past students and staff coming together for the school’s 75th anniversary.
P&C secretary Louise Sheehy said it was a great day with well over 1000 people taking part in the anniversary celebrations, at the school grounds.
“A huge crowd came through the school,” she said. “It was a full day of celebrations.”
The anniversary included speeches, plenty of memorabilia, lots of activities and rides for children, a petting zoo, and plenty of stalls.
“There were a lot of food stalls and lots of memory boards and photos, which the past students really enjoyed.”
She said three principals who had served at the school were on hand as well. Barton MP Linda Burney also took part on Saturday giving a speech.
Mrs Sheehy said it was a great way to celebrate not only the anniversary but also the expansion. She said exact details were yet to be released about when the school will open as a K-6 school and when redevelopments will begin to cater for the extra year groups.
Kyeemagh Infants School is also known as Kyeemagh Public School. It currently has about 60 children.
