Children at Sulby Primary School have taken part in a project to celebrate a special milestone in the building’s history.

The school opened its doors for the first time 30 years ago and pupils have marked the anniversary by designing tiles depicting how they would like the world to look in another 30 years’ time.

The project reflects the work being taught in the school in connection with the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Acting headteacher Penny Doran said: ’We are absolutely delighted with the finished result and proud of how the children have thrown themselves into this project.

’As well as celebrating the school’s 30th anniversary, working on the tiles has encouraged the children to think of others on a global scale and shown how they can make a positive difference.’

The tiles, produced in conjunction with the Craftworks Studio in Castletown, will be on display in the entrance hall for parents and visitors to enjoy.

They will act as a focal point for the school’s 30th anniversary following the building’s construction ahead of the start of the new school year in the autumn of 1991.

The school was built thanks to a generous donation of funding and land by Dr Daniel McDonald, the owner of Staward Farm.

It replaced the Sulby Elementary School, which opened in 1879 and served the village and the surrounding area for almost 112 years.
