Hayling Island school celebrates 40 years
Mill Rythe Infant School on Hayling Island celebrated 40 years since opening its doors to the first pupils.
The school celebrated by having a 1970’s themed day, dressing in 1970’s cloths and dancing to music from the era including Saturday Night Fever and Abba.
Six-year-old Billy Kilshaw said: “I’m surprised the school has stayed here for all these years.
“We’ve been doing a dance from the 1970s. It was fun. We wrote about the 70s too. It’s been brilliant.”
Assistant head teacher Charlotte Tighe said: “We had disco dancing so the children were learning all about that. We’ve been having a look at time capsules.
“We’ve been having a look at the history of the island as well. We have such a close-knit community on Hayling. A lot of our parents went here as children.
“It’s important, particularly because a lot of people don’t move off the island, that the children understand the heritage and the strong community links that we have here at Mill Rythe Infants.”
