Refreshments were delivered to the party on an old fashioned tricycle and there was a royal toast with glasses of sparkling apple juice.
And it wasn't just the children getting into the spirit of things as the teachers at the school gave a fashion show of clothes from the past five decades.
All the youngsters received a commemorative medal and the afternoon was brought to a close with a disco.
