PICK UP THE BEAT After a postponement due to snow, the annual dance festival run by the Year 11 BTEC Sport students, finally took place on Wednesday 20 March. It was a fantastic day with leaders receiving many comments about their outstanding behaviour and organisation skills.
The group have been planning this event since 15 November - just as well due to 309 students taking part from primary and secondary schools throughout our area and an audience of over 250! Fourteen schools entered including all our Federation schools which included Astor, Barton, Shattercliffs and White Cliffs.
Thank you to the Combined Cadet Force and SSi Anton Krakowski for organising the parking and Myles Ratcliffe from the Duke of Yorks Royal Military School who did the lighting, Mr Esdale and Mrs Greenstreet who helped backstage and Miss Cloke and Miss Gerrard who ran the event on the day. A brilliant night. Well done to all involved. S Fountain Director of Physical Education
