In 2018 Telford town turned 50. As part of this celebration our school planted a tree to recognise this milestone.
The children were also asked to put forward short statements and words on how they felt about Telford as Telford approaches its 50th birthday. These words were amongst a number of statements contributed by local organisations and members of the public to inspire a Telford 50 legacy project to be installed in the newly opened Southwater Square later this year.
The children described Telford as ‘Telford is amazing and exciting’, ‘Telford is for all ages’, ‘A high quality place’, ‘Amazing parks’, ‘Lots of things to do’, ‘Yummy places to eat’, ‘Full of life’, ‘Awesome’, ‘Full of greatness.’
Mrs Stolic said: ‘We are delighted to have been involved in this project, celebrating Telford’s 50th birthday. “It’s been genuinely remarkable to see how our pupils feel about Telford, their love for the town and the many things they enjoy doing in the borough.
“The Telford 50 tree growing now at our school is a way of passing on those feelings to the next generations that will hopefully share the same spirit.”
