Past and present students, families, and staff at West Byford Primary celebrated the school’s tenth anniversary last week.

The school’s P&C organised a sausage sizzle for the family picnic event, and there were lawn games, rock painting and face painting activities to keep kids busy.

Jenny Williamson and her three children brought their 410-sprint car to the event for kids to jump in for a photo.

She also organised 100 free tickets to the next race meet at the Perth Motorplex.

The three Williamson siblings are all past Head students at the school, with the eldest participating in the official turning of the sod back in 2013.

“It was a very good school for our kids and the teachers were fantastic, so it’s our way of giving back,” Ms Williamson said.

Past students Amber and Kelly Williamson return for the tenth anniversary.

Event organiser Tracey Morgan-Williams said the picnic was a success and looks forward to the opening of the time capsule and the next ten-year milestone for the school.

“I really want to thank the staff at the school. It’s a great school and I’m impressed at how well it’s been run over the past ten years,” she said.
