CIRCUS skills will be just one of the many forms of entertainment and activities in an open day to celebrate the 38-year history of Clare Middle School which closes at the end of July.
Students at the Cavendish Road school have been busy practising their unicycle and diabolo skills in preparation for the event next Saturday, July 2.
The school will open to visitors from 2pm to 6pm and circus skills will take place from 3pm to 5pm. Marquees will also be set up for dog agility, karate and bush craft demonstrations.
Sudbury band, The Ghost Train Porters, and solo artist David Mears will provide music in the outdoor square in the middle of the school while a barbecue will serve up food, with vouchers given out on arrival.
There will be face painting, a ceremonial cake cutting, the swimming pool will be open, and the main hall will have a café where a video highlighting many of the events in the school’s time will be shown on a big screen. An exhibition of archive material will also be on display.
From Monday, June 27 to Friday, July 1, any former pupils or staff who would like to see how things are now, compared to their time in the school, will be able to get a guided tour before it closes.
They can even stay for school lunch and can call the school in advance on 01787 277308.
