Thursday Night was Music Night (1987)

It was great! My hands were sore with clapping! A proud night for many parents and a very proud night for MGB. WHAT?

I am referring to the night of 17 December 1987 whwn the school arranged An Evening of Words and Music and invited an audience of parents, governors, friends and colleagues to what was to prove a most enjoyable evening.

The evening was a welcome breath of fresh, spring air - a phoenix rising from the ashes. Despite all the hardships suffered in schools [recently] the basic raw talent has refused to be stifled and there can be little doubt that MGB has certainly got a lot of talent.

Pupils and staff performed 24 separate items of music and readings - there is not room here to ionclude everybody that took part or contributed that evening and I apologise here for not mentioning them allby name. Suffice it to say that the evening was a huge success and that it would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of a large number of peole (many of whom never got into the spotlight). In particular thanks to Mr Banks, Miss Hollands and Mrs Gleave.
