Pupils in Years 5 to 8 took part in the memorial service marking 70 years since Arnhem on Saturday alongside 300 veterans. The day started with every child taking part in a torch relay along the Broadway. Years 7 and 8 then met the veterans at the Petwood hotel (the former base for the 617 'Dambusters' squadron) before marching alongside them to St Peter's church in front of a large crowd and the Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire. The first choir then sang as part of the church service before Amy and Charlotte lit the Freedom Flame.
It is going to be a great social event with live music by The Bush Doctors, Raffle and Charity Auction. Dinner, dance and late bar until 1am. Please contact the School Office if you would like to order tickets.
St. Hugh's were awarded the Constance Eastwood Cup for the best non-agricultural stand at the Lincolnshire Show. The school was presented with the cup by the President of the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, Mr Richard Needham. The award recognised the standard of the pupils' work on display, together with the interaction of the Year 7 pupils and visitors to the St. Hugh's stand. Congratulations to all involved!
