Come and enjoy our school's first met gala on Thursday 20th June in lunch in the Old Hall, which will be under the theme of climate change in support of a green charity. A competition is open to all years to come up with the best eco themed outfit to display on the "green carpet" which will be judged by a laid-back panel. Prizes will go to the best entries and house points are available for participation. If you don't feel up to joining the competition, come along anyway and support your friends. You can enjoy the catwalk and they’ll be food, drinks and music. You can also take a photo in our eco photo booth. Tickets will be coming round tutors soon for 50p each. Hope to see you there.
