A song and a dance at Whitehawk Primary School before it becomes an academy
3:40pm Thursday 25th July 2013 in News
Schoolchildren and staff lapped up the sun on the most historical day in a school since the 1930s.
Whitehawk Primary School celebrated its final day of term with a singing and dancing street-party to commemorate a major change in the school.
In September it will reopen as City Academy Whitehawk, turning the page of the school’s 70-year history.
Yesterday afternoon the school community took to the streets for the last time to represent Whitehawk Primary School as each year presented a show for each decade of music since the school was opened.
Annie Noble, head teacher at Whitehawk Primary School, said: “We have had the most brilliant afternoon – a fitting end to a fantastic school.
“I am very, very proud of our children, our staff and our families and this is what today was all about – a celebration of this fantastic school.
“I have to thank everyone that has helped us along the way and next year we become one big family and we embrace it and I’m just so proud to have been a part of Whitehawk Primary School.”
