Moon mission a success!

We look back on a fantastic series of events which saw over 2000 people visit the moon installation. Those fortunate enough to be at the launch night heard from Luke Jerram himself and enjoyed good food and a wonderful evening that culminated in an outdoor gathering to enjoy the soulful blues of Kiris Riviere and the Dambusters.

The Friday night brought us the Arts Soiree where we were entertained by the Handfuls of Harmony core choir. This was merely the warm-up act for a series of performances from Ashton Parks up and coming drama and musical stars. The weekend saw hundreds of the public streaming into school to enjoy the delights of the Museum of the Moon with its fantastic atmospheric soundtrack.

Throughout all of the events visitors marvelled over the quality of the art and photography on display in our Arts exhibition. Many people enquired about buying the work on show which was a fitting tribute to the skill of our young artists and the staff teaching them.

We are pleased to announce that the events raised a magnificent £8475.09. This money will go towards the installation of new sound and lighting in the schools main hall. Further events to raise funds for this cause are planned for the next school year. Many thanks to all of those who contributed.
