St Clare’s Primary School Officer Foundation students and teachers are celebrating reaching 100 days of learning in the classroom.

Students enjoyed dressing up as 100 year olds, with props of pearls, hair rollers, walking sticks and suspenders donned for the special day.

The students celebrated with a shindig that involved dancing, singing, colouring-in and counting to 100.

A wonderful day was celebrated by all, including four very old, weathered but enthusiastic Foundation teachers – Holly, Dom, Declan and Karla.

Foundation teacher Holly Ross-Gilder said she was proud of all the students.

“They’ve done a very good job settling into school and they work really hard so it’s nice that we’re able to celebrate their achievements,” she said.

“They look absolutely fantastic. Our parents and caters put a lot of effort into their costumes and you can see the smiles on their faces.

“Last year we were lucky enough to have 100 days at school but shortly after we went into lockdown so we didn’t get to have a dress-up celebration, so this is really special to be all together.”

The celebration was held on Friday 29 July.
