Staff at Buckholme Towers School and Nursery held a charity ball at The Sandbanks Hotel in Poole on Friday November 28 to celebrate its 75th anniversary.
The event was themed 1940s to pay homage to the school’s history as it opened the day the Second World War broke out.
Staff, parents and guests donned military uniforms and Victory Rolls. The event included a charity auction which raised £3,000 and was split between charities Julia’s House and The British Heart Foundation
Iain Robertson, headmaster at Buckholme Towers School and Nursery, said: “We were overwhelmed by the amount of money which was raised for the two local charities which we hold close personal connections to. We’re extremely grateful for the support shown by local businesses in providing the vast array of raffle prizes and auction items.
“Guests really enjoyed themselves and danced the night away to swing band ‘In the Pink’. The 1940s theme was great and even the table decorations were based on wartime rationing with National Dried Milk and chocolate.”
Local WW2 enthusiasts, Ron Pier and Tim Hanscomb provided authentic wartime memorabilia for the centrepiece of the even and guests posed for photographs with artillery, a military motorbike and a Winston Churchill impersonator.

AFC Bournemouth’s star right-back Simon Francis and the Nuffield Health Bug Busting team are set to visit Buckholme Towers School on Wednesday November 12 for a special WW1 workshop.
The Bug Busters scheme was launched jointly by Nuffield Health and AFC Bournemouth to educate schoolchildren about how to stop germs spreading. It is hoped the programme will help children to avoid preventable illnesses and reduce absences from school owing to sickness.
Schools visited by the Bug Busting team can expect a series of interactive classroom and football activities, but in honour of the WW1 centenary this year, the Bug Busters will be educating pupils at Buckholme Towers School and Nursery about infection prevention in the trenches and hospitals of 1914.
Iain Robertson, headmaster at Buckholme Towers School and Nursery, said: “The pupils love getting involved with interactive learning sessions where they can transform themselves into another era. I think the Bug Busters campaign will certainly be success here and hopefully at many more schools in the area.”
The pupils will be dressed in WW1 uniforms and take part in a series of workshops about how pioneering infection prevention practices developed during this time are still used in today’s modern medicine.
Chris Tickner, infection prevention lead at Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital, said: “We firmly believe prevention of disease is far better than cure. It will be fantastic to see the children having fun and learning at the same time, we hope they will remember the skills they learn in the workshop well into the future.”
Schools interested in finding out more about Bug Busters are invited to contact Steve Cuss at AFC Bournemouth on 01202 726342, or to contact the Nuffield Bournemouth Hospital’s friendly customer services team on 01202 702830.
