Who’s 30th Anniversary?
Ok, I’m not talking about my business today; I’m not quite old enough for that (although not far from it!). Today I’m talking about one of the Primary Schools I went to as a child.
Priorslee County Primary School (as it was then) opened 13th April 1989. I was one of the first students. As it opened for my final year, I was only there a short period, but loved my time there. It was very different to my old primary school but in a good way.
Before I go on, I have to point out one thing. I saw a picture today of the school. What I cannot believe is that the temporary classroom that was there when I was thirty years ago, is still there! Apparently it has air conditioning now.
That was 30 years ago. It has come a long way since I was there and is now a Primary Academy school but it still holds a few memories for me. This is one of the pictures from our sports day. Clearly there was no uniform that day. I still remember being part of the schools cricket and football teams, playing against other schools. Let’s just say their wasn’t many girls. A lot has changed in thirty years. The second picture is my sister. The year of 1990-1991.
A Bit About The School.
Priorslee Primary Academy encourage and foster the development of each child intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally within a caring atmosphere. They strive to make their school a caring community and their children sensitive to the needs of others; a community in which all members have a sense of fairness and justice. Each and every member is valued. This is something they have committed to since it opened 30 years. As one of the very first students there, I certainly felt valued.
One thing that also stayed with me from my short time there, was the sense of belonging. When you get moved from a school to a new school, it’s always tough. You have to make friends all over again. You have to adjust to the new surrounding and way of learning. However, even back then, the support was always there.
So Why Am I Writing About Their 30th Anniversary?
Well, by some coincidence, I was contacted by one of the lovely friends of the school. Although it was completely random that she found me from all the other marketing people out there, I felt it was something I just had to do. As you, my followers know, I’m not the best at writing blogs. I write what I think and share it. So let’s get to the point.
This Saturday, 8th June, they are celebrating their anniversary in style – Summer Fayre Style. They have so much planned, it’s going to be an amazing day out for the family.
They have Dancing Displays from the Ironmen & Severn Gilders Morris. The Exotic Zoo Priorslee will be bringing along some new friends for you all to meet! Arthog are bringing along their Climbing Wall. PJ The Children’s & Family Entertainer will be there to keep things running smoothly. Rumour has it you might be slightly ‘shaken not stirred’ at the ‘Bongo’.

A Bit About Me
A mother of six year old twins, I own two businesses. My wedding planning was the first to be setup. Everyone thought I was mad at the time as I worked full time and my girls were almost three. I’m a bit of a workaholic so it wasn’t an issue for me. Within the first year, I won several awards, I have been featured globally and have appeared on the BBC for a small piece on the royal wedding back in 2018.
My passion for helping people grew so I began to think how I could help more people. There are only so many wedding one can do without impacting on my clients experience so I decided to see what else I could do. That was when my coaching company was born. Being able to help other small businesses and entrepreneurs be success is amazing and I love every minute of it.
