HORSLEY Park Public School will attain a remarkable milestone next month when it turns 80.

The students are looking forward to celebrating the day in style, with a range of activities and performances planned.

School principal Matthew Santucci said the event would start with an Aboriginal smoking ceremony, followed by a school choir performance for guests.

"We're going to have our kindergarten to year 6 students doing dance performances throughout the day and have guest speakers including Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone and myself," he said.

"We will also be unveiling an 80th memorial wall.

"Bricks can be purchased on the day to add to it."

One of the classrooms at the school will be transformed into a historical museum for the day and will feature artefacts dating back to 1934.

"It's going to feature the original deeds of the school, photos and all the teachers' programs from back then," Mr Santucci said.

"We're super excited and can't wait for the day because not only have we been working really hard to get everything together, but the students have also been working hard to make their performances perfect for the day."

The celebration will take place on Sunday, September 14, from 10am at Horsley Park Public School, 1759 The Horsley Drive, Horsley Park.
