Topical Photography This Week - Around the Schools on Comic Relief Day - Part Two

Above: Red Nose Day at John Kyrle High School. Above, Tom Dryden and James Dart were given permission to raise money by spending the whole day 'bunny hopping' outside, in the school grounds.

Below: Many of the older pupils at John Kyrle High School paid a penalty to wear fancy dress for the day. The top group, pictured on the stage with Head Teacher, Nigel Griffiths range from a chicken to Little Bo Peep.
Below, Head of Year 10, Dave Chatwin poses with a group of girls and the 'Village People'. Love the hairdo, Dave!

Bottom: A Break Dancer, just one of the many clever acts I caught at the Ashfield Park Primary School Talent Contest. I have not the room to publish all photographs of this event and, as I had to rush off to another school, I am afraid I cannot name the winner of the contest. I did photograph all acts though, so if you are a parent and would like prints, for security reasons, please enquire at the school.

Hunt for Easter Eggs at the Heritage Centre

Ross Heritage Centre will be holding their usual Activity Day for the Easter Holidays on Thursday 31st March. Children and adults of all ages can drop in for free between 10.30 am and 1pm for a few hours of fun. Children must be accompanied so why not ask grandma or granddad, auntie or uncle to come along as well. The more the merrier. They can all have some fun and have a go at unscrambling the quiz questions with you.

There will be an Easter Egg Hunt with a Quiz, as well as a chance to make something crafty. The eggs will be hidden around the gallery and will depict Characters from History. Can you find King Henry the Egg-th, Queen Egg-lizabeth the First or even William Scramble-speare? These are just a few of the many characters that will be Frying-in for the day. There will be a quiz for all relating to the eggy characters.

When you have had a go at that, there will be a opportunity to have a go at making something crafty, with the Easter theme. The staff are looking for awful eggy jokes - so please think some up and bring them along with you at the same time. You can crack them up with these whilst you are being crafty.

The "School Days" exhibition continues until the end of the month. This has once again proved to be very popular, but the photographs will have to be taken down to make way for the April exhibition. However, if you have a photograph you feel may be used for the future, please do remember to bring it in. It is hoped to be able to repeat the exhibition again in a couple of year's time. There is still plenty of new material out there which can be used.

As usual, the centre will be open all over Easter, including Easter Sunday. Times of opening will be 10.30 am to 4 pm with a break for lunch from 1 pm to 1.30 pm. From Maundy Thursday to Easter Monday there will be a chance to purchase books and gifts at a 10% reduction. This will be for the holiday weekend only, but does not include the many charitable and crafty items for sale, which are very reasonably priced at all times. For details on the above and for other enquiries please contact the centre during opening times or telephone 01432 260675. From 1st April the centre will be open for summer hours - Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and Sundays 10:30 am to 4 pm The usual lunchtime closure will take place between 1 pm and 1.30 pm if there are no relief staff available to cover.
