Founded in 1965, St John Fisher Primary School, St Albans is looking forward to celebrating its 50th birthday. And in conjunction with this great landmark, they intend to extend the school buildings with a plan (named by a pupil) known as the Fisher Fifty Project.

Headteacher Mr McNerney said “This an important event for the school as it is the launch of events to mark our 50th anniversary. We want to celebrate all that is good about the school and all that has happened in the last 50 years.

” We also want to tell everyone about our plans for the future and how we want to improve and develop the building. We hope to have a series of events which will be celebratory but will also help us with fund raising.”

The official launch will be held on Wednesday 22nd May 2013 ( 7.30 pm) at St John Fisher School, Haselmere Drive, St Albans AL4 9RW

If you have any photos or memories to share, or would like to come along to the event, please let the school know (01727 861077) or email
