Their celebrations include a whole school concert celebrating music from the last 50 years, and they will be showcasing some of their school history.

If anyone has items relating to the school, they would be thrilled if they could include them as part of this showcase. This is open to all members of the public from 9.15am to 10.30am.

The school is also asking for help from the people of Halifax as somewhere on their site is a time capsule and no-one knows where it is.
