The Junior school year came to a celebratory close with an evening of prizes, dance and musical entertainment enjoyed by pupils, parents and governors.
The Junior school orchestra displayed their musical talents with ‘Summer Song’ by Jean Allison and this was followed by an exceptional piano performance from Talia Zelhof. Tahlia Smith and Tianie-Finn Grainger then captivated the audience with a beautiful dance piece. The vocalists’ rendition of ‘Adiemus’ by Karl Jenkins was striking for its use of a series of solo performances by different members of the group.
Governor and former pupil John Shackleton presented trophies for academic and co-curricular achievements and each of the Year 6 pupils received the leaving gift of a book as they move on to Senior school.
Speeches by the chairman of governors Christopher Dunn and headmaster Tim Wheeler reflected on the school year while head girl Amy Jack and head boy Alexander Foster captured the vibrancy of school life from a pupil’s perspective.
Commenting on his experience of school Alexander said: “Stockport Grammar has taught me that everything is possible, except perhaps breathing in outer space!”
