School celebrates birthday

EVERY pupil was invited to a Bognor Regis school’s golden anniversary.

 

All 600 children at Edward Bryant School enjoyed the 50th birthday celebration with Malcolm the Magician.

 

The performer delighted them at three one-hour shows with a range of tricks from a snowstorm and miraculous flowers and balls.

 

Among one of his audiences were Oscar Lawrence, seven, and Joe Ingram, eight.

 

Oscar said: “The magician was very funny. I liked it best when he put the dice in a box and it went into a hat.”

 

Joe said: “I think he is very clever.”

 

Malcolm the Magician said he had enjoyed the occasion. “They have been absolutely amazing audiences. I love seeing the children’s faces, seeing them smile and being happy,” he said.

 

The shows took place last Thursday – 50 years to the day of the official opening of the school at its London Road site after a move from its original premises in Lyon Street.

 

The ceremony was carried out by Mr Bryant’s widow, Winifred Bryant, on the fifth anniversary of his death. Mr Bryant had been a prominent councillor in the town and a former mayor.
