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
· 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.
