BRIGHT sunshine illuminated a three-decade flashback at Brixington's Bassetts Farm Primary as the school celebrated its 30th anniversary.A summer party saw Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils take turns to dance a country jig in the courtyard, as their peers brushed up on a little history to find out what previous generations did to amuse themselves.Footage of old favourites such as The Flumps and Button Moon proved fascinating, with old-style games from 1978 to entertain. The party ended with a delicious birthday cake for all the kids and the teachers, before party bags sent youngsters home smiling.Headteacher Christine Jones has guided the school for more than half its years, and said teachers and pupils stuck together at the school, on St Johns Road."Bassetts Farm is a big family," said Mrs Jones. "We all look after each other and support each other, and everything we do, we all do together. That's Bassetts Farm."The school, which has doubled in size to more than 300 pupils since Mrs Jones began in 1991, is already looking to the future and a new pre-school extension.
