Sapphire Anniversary

Mayor Shares Ashmore Park Nursery School Sapphire Anniversary

On Thursday 5th November Ashmore Park Nursery School welcomed City Mayor, Councillor Ian Brookfield and Mayoress Paula Brookfield to the school, to celebrate the Sapphire Anniversary of the opening of the School 45 Years ago.

Families shared the special day by coming into nursery and creating a canvas to commemorate the occasion.


Families then celebrated with tea and cakes and finally presented the Mayor and Mayoress with a special gift, an engraved blue vase, to mark the day.


Headteacher Sue Lacey said “This is a big day in the life of our school, we are delighted that we have been able to share it with Wolverhampton's Mayor and Mayoress, and of course our children and their families”.


Councillor Phil Bateman Chair of Ashmore Park Nursery Governing Body added "I have thoroughly enjoyed today, we have been able show off our school and to inform the Civic Head of Wolverhampton of the successful bid this school, along with our UK partners, and our Swedish colleagues have made to the European Union’s Erasmus Funding.  This school is currently working within a community of learners across Local Authorities in the UK as well as with several pre-schools in Sweden.  We are very keen to innovate and develop teaching so that our children are able to think creatively, solve problems and work as part of a group. This way we will be working towards equipping our children for an uncertain world”.
