90th birthday celebrations in 2016

2016 sees the 90th birthday anniversaries for both Riverston School and Beech Hall School.  To mark this unusual coincidence and wonderful landmark, both schools will be celebrating throughout 2016 by each organising 90 events - large and small, both grand and simple.

The schools are collaborating with the same launch event on Wednesday 13th January, with children and staff of both schools gathering in their respective locations to create a 'human 90' photograph, followed by a release of balloons by all the children. 

2016 promises to be a memorable year for both schools, and they will also be celebrating a number of other important events and milestones through the year ....

2016 sees the 90th birthday of Mrs Lewis, the mother of Prof Michael Lewis.  Mrs Lewis, together with her late husband acquired Riverston School in 1956 - so thats a 60th anniversary celebration as well ...

2016 also sees the 90th birthday of HM The Queen - happy birthday Ma'am and we will be celebrating with you later in the year.

2016 is Olympic Year - and both schools will be focusing on the Olympic Values throughout the forthcoming 12 months:

  • Courage
  • Determination
  • Equality
  • Excellence
  • Friendship
  • Inspiration
  • Respect

We will keep everyone updated with the various events throughout the year.
