60th Anniversary Focus Day
On Thursday 17th November, the whole school got together to celebrate Langley Grammar School’s 60th anniversary. The day resulted in various activities that replaced the students’ original timetable and ended with a whole school assembly.
Below is Arya Naik's (9H) account.
Each department planned and delivered sessions with a 1950s theme. All students had the opportunity to attend two of these sessions during the day. In the afternoon assembly, all the activities of the day were brought together with a short presentation from each subject area. The presentations varied and included videos, art work, posters and speeches.
Throughout the day, we worked in mixed-year groups. The 6th formers would help the younger students and vice versa. It was a chance for the whole school to get together and share their thoughts, ideas and make some new friends. The students really seemed to enjoy the concept of this focus day as it gave us a chance to try and learn something new about our school and its history.
After lunch, we had an assembly in the sports hall which was led by Mr Adams. It began with a speech from Mr Constable about how Langley Grammar School has developed over time and was then followed by the presentations from each subject. We also had a short video presentation containing all the pictures taken by the news team for the day, some of which are enclosed in this article. It was an excellent day and I would like to thank Mr Adams for organising it so well.
