Dramatic start to school’s anniversary celebrations
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.
