Pupils at Shieldhill primary took a step back in time to the Swinging Sixties to celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary at its present location.

Festivities included music, fashion and memories from the era as pupils from every class took part in a range of activities to learn about the free-spirited decade which changed the world.

Former pupils through the decades and parents visited to see a memorial wall full of old pictures and stories while 50 golden balloons were released in a race for prizes.

P3 and P4 pupils played playground 60s games and made badges and magnets to sell, P6 children did songs and dances famous from the time and the P7s held a colourful fashion show full of flower power.

A time capsule filled with memorabilia was also filled for future generations to look back at the present era.
