All the faces who put in an appearance at the school at the end of last year and the beginning of 2000 - pupils, parents, staff and visitors - were captured on camera.

The pictures were then transferred on to 830 tiles, which were used to decorate the main staircase.

andra Watt, the headteacher, said: "Our children are too young to understand the concept of a new millennium, so I thought the best way to mark 2000 was to provide a permanent record of everybody who was associated with the nursery and I hope that this will, in time, provide a bit of local history. The children enjoy looking for familiar faces,but it has to be said that the tile of Santa Claus is a favourite."
