Tandoori Night - December 2008

Jack Hunt School recently hosted its first Tandoori Night Extravaganza to celebrate Christmas, Eid and Diwali where Year 12 and Year13 students organised and attended a wonderful array of performances making it a memorable evening for all those who attended. The evening was organised as part of the School’s work towards bringing together and promoting different cultures within the community.Jack Hunt Pupils enjoying Tandoori Night

DJ Sunny Roadshow and its live Dhol Players, beat boxing, a fashion show spectacular, and magnificent Bhangra Dancing were just few of the exciting variety of entertainment provided throughout the evening. The performers danced and paraded in dazzling outfits to over 150 people including staff and students who all had a great time!

Twelve students provided a spectacular fashion show with a range of designer wear. All enjoyed the different clothes ranging from ball dresses to shalwar kameezes.

The food, provided by Express Grill Takeaway was delicious and the entertainment, fantastic, “a thoroughly enjoyable night” said Sophia Darr, Student Support Officer and one of the organising team.
