PUPILS from the five Whit­tle- sey schools joined to­gether for an ex­cit­ing show­case of tal­ent.

Chil­dren from Al­der­man Ja­cobs, Park Lane, New Road and Coates pri­mary schools were in­vited to Sir Harry Smith Com­mu­nity Col­lege, in Eas­trea Road, Whit­tle­sey to demon­strate their creative side.

Fif­teen acts per­formed in to­tal, three groups from each school, and a panel made up of school staff mem­bers and the High Sher­iff of Cam- bridgeshire Richard Barn­well gave feed­back to each act.

As­sis­tant prin­ci­pal of Sir Harry Smith Com­mu­nity Col­lege, Richard Pot­ter said: “I was so im­pressed with the young peo­ple, both on the stage, be­hind the stage and in front of the stage.

“They are all so sup­port­ive of each other and I thought it was an ex­tremely good evening.”

Pupil rep­re­sen­ta­tives from each of the schools worked with the Whit­tle­sey Lo­cal­ity Team to plan the event.

Lo­cal­ity team man­ager, Suzanne Dono­van said: “It was so in­spir­ing to see such a fan­tas­tic project be­ing de­vel­oped.

“Es­pe­cially as it was one led, de­signed and de­liv­ered by chil­dren and young peo­ple across Whit­tle­sey.”
