GOLDEN celebrations were held at a Rawthorpe school.
Former pupils, staff, children and parents marked the 50th year since the inauguration of Rawthorpe CE Infant and Nursery School.
An open afternoon and cake cutting ceremony was held to welcome the community and celebrate the special milestone.
It was part of a year of events which have been planned to welcome as many members of the community back into the building.
Headteacher Joan Rock said: “The school has undergone many changes over 50 years but remains the focal point for the whole community.
“The commitment and support of staff, parents and friends has remained constant throughout this time.”
Fifty years ago this month the then Bishop of Wakefield the Rt Rev J A Ramsbotham, dedicated the school, one of three schools on the site.
