Silver Jubilee dinner and ball for Rastrick High School at Berties, Elland

RASTRICK High School staff ended their 25th anniversary celebrations in style with a glittering Silver Jubilee ball at Berties, Elland.

Over the year there have been many special events to mark the silver jubilee year at the school including a commemorative whole school photograph. Writer Ian McMillan was guest speaker at the school’s annual presentation evening, there was a gala concert at Huddersfield Town Hall and the new technology centre was opened.

In January the Jubilee Minibus Appeal was launched to raise £10,000 in just six months. The school is now awaiting its arrival at the end of this month, ordered in silver to mark the celebrations.

Head teacher Helen Lennie, said: “It was a terrific evening and a great way to celebrate the culmination of our 25th anniversary year. Everyone at the school is proud of what we achieved over the past 12 months and are looking forward to the next 25 years!”
