GREENFAULDS High School is one of Cumbernauld's oldest schools, and on June 11th Greenfaulds High School had a party to celebrate the school's 40th anniversary.
Originally opened back in 1971, Greenfaulds High School had prided itself on a high level of attainment as well as offering Gaelic courses, one of few schools to offer this sort of education.
The fun day was open to the entire community and the event proved to be a hit with old pupils and Head Teachers reminiscing with every turn of the corridor.
For one whole day the grounds of the school were turned into a fun house, with clowns, entertainment, bouncy castles, fire engines, a piper,  and even a stall from Cumbernauld Outdoor Centre's "World of Wings," which always proved the be a hit.

Also taking part in the festivities were Cumbernauld's MP and Central Scotland MSP, Gregg McClymont MP and Mark Griffin MSP.
They both enjoyed a guided tour of the school, from current Head Teacher Doctor John May, and got to see how Greenfauld's celebrated its big 4-0!
Commenting on the day Gregg said: "It was, as always, a delight to visit the school and I was pleased to be involved in the 40th Anniversary Celebrations. The open day proved to be a fun-filled day for all who were in attendance and I thoroughly enjoyed myself."
Newly elected MSP for Central Scotland, Mark Griffin added: "Greenfaulds High School has educated so many young people from our area over the years and the teachers and pupils have an excellent record of achieving high standards. I found the day thoroughly enjoyable and a great deal of fun was had by everyone."
