Fabulous 50th celebrations
On Thursday at the school we all celebrated the 50th anniversary of Guildford West. The celebrations included a special assembly where among speeches and welcomes to all we were entertained by wonderful pieces from the schools recent concert. The concert pieces evoked memories of the moon landing with some astronauts a rocket and wonderful dancing to Frank Sinatras 'Fly me to the moon". the other pieces celebrated the 50's and Babe the movie. There were historical displays, a walk downn memory lane and special video booths where you could leave your memories for posterity. Gulldford League provided a wonderful sausage sizzle and our school comunity contributed to a wonderful morning tea.
