To celebrate 'MK IS 50!' today all the children released a green helium filled balloon with a tag attached into the sky. Every tag has a child's name and a request that the person who finds it emails the school to let us know how far it has travelled. We decided to do the balloon release as a tribute to the first big Milton Keynes balloon release at the MK Bowl, as two of our current staff had taken part in that original event. The children were very thrilled and excited watching the balloons floating off into the sky. The children took part in lots of different activities throughout the day to commemorate the special day.
