Colston’s Primary School in Cotham have launched a timeline project as part of the school’s celebrations of its 70th academic year as a state primary. 

Ex-pupils, staff, governors and parents are warmly invited to take part in the celebratory projects to mark this milestone.

Were you a pupil during the last 70 years? Did you teach here? Were you a member of staff in any capacity? A parent or grandparent?

Chair of Governors, Kate Swainson Price said: “You are the people who have made up the rich fabric of the school's history over the past 70 years. Current pupils and staff are keen to hear your stories.

“As part of these projects we are hoping to get in touch with as many alumni as possible. Could this be you? Please do be in touch if so.”

The children are creating a timeline of the school’s history since its beginning in 1947. And they’d like to illustrate it with memories from ex-pupils, staff, governors and parents.

There is now a Heritage Schools funded project to help children explore the school’s local heritage; part of the plan is to inform the children via accounts from ex-pupils and staff. This can be done either digitally or in person or both.

The collection of memorabilia will form part of an exhibition timeline around the walls of the school hall as well as a digital timeline displayed on the school website. These timelines will evolve over the year and form a key exhibit during the anniversary festival in the summer term.
