Wow just 2 weeks since the 2014 Reunion and here is the podcast that we recorded live in the Chapel.  

There is none of the usual events and things, the whole thing was done at school.  

So what have we got for you this month?

To start with we have a new guest presenter of Jane Readfern-Gray as Jo was unable to make this years event.  

We feature some of the Current students at the school, performing 2 songs along with Ukebox who are working with the school to form the worlds first Visually Impaired Ukulele band.  We also get to hear Summer play her Flute for us too.  This gives us a taste of what is happening at the school today 

Next up Jane has a chat to Gemma about her work experience.  Followed by Sue Clamp who was a former deputy head at the school from 1987.  

We finish up with John Patterson talking about the school today, and looking forward to the future.
