Back to the 1970s for Harpenden school’s 40th birthday

It was the decade that saw President Richard M. Nixon resign from office and the Bee Gees dominate music charts with hit songs such as Stayin’ Alive.
The 1970s made a welcome return to The Lea Primary School in Harpenden last week, as staff and pupils showed fashion flair with their flares, not to mention the odd tie-dye outfit.
Headteacher Sharon Swinson said children and adults alike had fun as they harked back to that decade, to help celebrate the school’s 40th anniversary.
She said: “We even had a ‘70s ice-cream van arrive. It was just a fantastic day.”
On Saturday September 26, The Lea will again host a Lego exhibition, which will double as a fundraising event.

Last year the popular exhibition attracted an audience of over 1,700 people, and raised nearly £7,000 for the school.
