An East Dunbartonshire Primary School has produced a special calendar to mark its 140th anniversary in 2014.

As part of the build up to what will be an eventful year for Baldernock Primary, the school held a celebration recently.

Pictures from the family fun day and community event are included in the calendar. The event was a great success.

Two marquees were set up in an area at the back of the school and vistors enjoyed a delicious buffet.

And a local farmer allowed his field to be used as a car park.

Rosemary Sutherland, a clerical assistant at the village school, said:“It was truly a community event, with past and present pupils making it a great day.

“We even had some ex-teachers come along to reminisce about what the school was like when they were teachers.”

The calendar is packed with pictures of school life, with some of the children in fancy dress from different eras.

The calendar is now for sale and costs £5. All proceeds will to school funds.

It can be bought from the school office.
