Campie Primary School’s upcoming centenary has been highlighted in the House of Commons by Martin Whitfield MP.

The school will celebrate its 100 years on 26th May and with an exhibition of old photos and memorabilia on Friday 31st May and Saturday 1st June.

At today’s Commons Business Questions, Mr Whitfield highlighted Campie’s centenary and asked the Leader of the House of Commons if MPs could have time to discuss the important community role played by schools like Campie.

Martin Whitfield MP said:

“I want to say a huge congratulations to all of the pupils and staff at Campie Primary who are celebrating the school’s centenary this year!

“Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the official celebrations, so I was really pleased to have the opportunity to help mark them by mentioning the centenary on the floor of the House of Commons.

“I also asked the Leader of the House if we could set aside time to talk about the role schools such as Campie serve in teaching empathy, kindness and knowledge across local communities.”
