Centenary Project

 

 100 Years of School! 

 

In 2012 St Bede celebrated 100 years since it first opened its doors as Danemark Elementary School. We were fortunate to receive funnding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to undertake a project to research and celebrate this centenary.

Aspects of the celebratory project included:

·         Centenary procession – click on the article below the photographs

·         Full arrangement and recording of the school song We are the Children of St. Bede

·         Cathedral Service of Thanksgiving, Celebration and Remembrance

·         An oral history project gathering memories of past pupils and staff

·         Collection of photographs

·         Exhibition

·         Workshops for children

·         Visits to Hampshire Record Office to explore archive records about the school.

 

A wonderful book 'Celebrating 100 years. Danemark to St Bede 1912 - 2012.' was written as part of this project and is available from the school office. Do contact us if you would like a copy of the  book.
