The evening was also organised as part of the School’s work towards bringing together and promoting different cultures within the community.

DJ Sunny Roadshow and its live Dhol Players, beat boxing, carol singing, and magnificent Bhangra Dancing, were just a few of the exciting variety of entertainment provided throughout the evening The main event was a fashion show spectacular organised by Year 13 Student, Nabeela Rashid. Staff and students danced and paraded in dazzling outfits from ball dresses to shalwar kameezes to over 150 people.

“It’s great to be celebrating Jack Hunt School’s 40th Anniversary with such a spectacular event” said Sophia Dar, Student Support Officer and one of the organising team. “Second year running, it was again a brilliant and enjoyable evening and fantastic to see so many staff and students coming together to celebrate cultural diversity”.
