The next generation of Bracknell Primary School students will take centre stage when the school celebrates 150 years of history on Saturday.

With hundreds of past and present students, teachers and parents set to attend the celebrations, a team of five students have been tasked with the role of tour guides.

Teacher Sharmane Jones said two of the student ambassadors were fourth and fifth generation Bracknell students.

“They’re our leaders of the school and they’re going to be the leaders next Saturday,” Mrs Jones said.  

“They'll be taking the people around, unlocking the classrooms and explaining what we do now and the technology that we have now.”

The celebrations will also incorporate past favourites from the Bracknell Show, including sheepdog demonstrations, woodchopping and blacksmithing. 

“Our Launching into Learning room will be turned back to an old classroom with inkwells and the blackboard and the dunce’s hat and cane, so that'll go back and they can have their photos taken there as well.

“We're having vintage machinery and old tractors and as many of the old school buses we can find will be back lined up for people.”

The event will run from 10am to 3pm.
