JKHS Art, Design and Technology Evening

There were two exhibitions held at the John Kyrle High School on Thursday 14th June, both of which displayed the tremendous talent that the school's students possess. This first set of photographs of the event are of the Design and Technology projects undertaken by GCSE, AS and A level students.

In this first photograph are year 12 student, Sam Jenkins, Mr. David Shannon, Head Teacher Mr. Nigel Griffiths and student Chloe Rutsch. David Shannon is the National Co-ordinator for the government organization that runs specialist schools. He works from Nottingham but visited John Kyrle High School because the students' work is exceptional among the 587 other technology colleges.

More photos can be seen on pages 6 and 8.

Helping the fishermen's families

Lorna and Andrew Marshall organized an old fashioned jumble sale, which was held at Ross Baptist Church on Saturday to raise money for the Fishermen's Mission. The sale took two weeks to organize, during which local shops were very helpful, donating goods to sell.

The Fishermen's Mission helps the widows and children of fishermen and is currently helping two hundred children who have lost their fisherman fathers.

In the photo, Lorna and Andrew Marshall can be seen with Simon Wigley, Fishermen's Mission Fundraiser for the Wales and England Borders.

The Killing of Sister George

When the "Killing of Sister George" first opened in the mid-sixties some people considered it a shocker. There was Beryl Reid playing a lesbian and, even more shocking, the play dared to poke fun at the BBC and long-running radio series like "The Archers". Nevertheless the show was a huge success and those who could get seats enjoyed a powerful comedy/drama that explored the touching and sometimes hilarious tribulations of the relationship between an emotional female radio star and her live-in companion.

David Edwards, who directs the play, believes he is lucky to have found the best possible cast for this challenging drama. Joanna Hicks and Annette O'Hara ideal casting for the couple, Jane Russell makes a perfect BBC executive type, and a long-time local favourite Barbara Morley-Jones creates a truly original eccentric fortune teller.

Performances begin on Friday 22nd June and continue through until Saturday 30th (excluding Sunday) at 7.30pm. Tickets at 6 can be obtained from the Phoenix Theatre 10.30am - 12.30pm (01989 564570) and The Heritage Centre 10.30am - 4.30pm (01432 260675).
