Dra­matic start to school’s an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

JACK Hunt School in Nether­ton is look­ing to kick off its 40th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions with a show-stop­ping drama show­case.

The evening at the Led­bury Road school will put the spot­light on the per­form­ing arts cen­tre and the pupils will be putting on a va­ri­ety of per­for­mances in a raft of dif­fer­ent gen­res and styles.

Spokes­woman for Jack Hunt School, Nicki Greaves, said: “Pupils, staff and par­ents are in­vited and it would be great to see lots of you sup­port­ing our pupils and help cel­e­brate their suc­cess in this very im­por­tant 40th an­niver­sary year.”

Re­fresh­ments will be avail­able, with pro­ceeds go­ing to the Year 11 prom and ticket sales pro­ceeds will go to­wards fund­ing an A Level stu­dents trip to Greece to study Greek the­atre next year.

Tick­ets will be on sale in the can­teen, priced £2 for adults and £1 for pupils.

The event is just part of plans for the of­fi­cial cel­e­bra­tion day for the school’s 40th an­niver­sary on July 10.

Al­ready there has been a po­etry evening, Bhangra evening, tan­doori night and an an­nual mu­si­cal and spring con­cert.

Fu­ture plans in­clude an open day, staff quiz and the bury­ing of a time cap­sule in the Me­mo­rial Gar­den on July 9.

The school was of­fi­cially opened in 1970 by Al­der­man Dr Jack Hunt, chair­man of the Ed­u­ca­tion Com­mit­tee of the then Hunt­ing­don and Peter­bor­ough County Coun­cil.
