Sunday morning smiles
What a great evening at Bridlington Spa watching former pupil Scott Garnham’s production of Come What May.
Scott, together with Simon Schofield of Sisco productions and Sweeney entertainments created a truly memorable show, where everyone got up on their feet during the finale mega Mix. Friend and fellow KH Director ‘Auntie’ Sue (Thackray) went along with me on what was an awful blustery night but soon we got into the warmth of the production.
Jai McDowall Britain’s got talent winner, Celyn Cartwright and David Wyatt together with a fabulously talented ensemble made an evening to remember. Don’t miss the show when it comes to The Grand Opera House York early next year.
After texting Scott to congratulate him on such a superb show it was lovely to hear back with his reply “Ah thanks so much for going! That means the world you loved it “
On another note all the best for panto dance auditions everyone. Miss Angela x

Focus on our KH Saturday younger Drama classes with Miss Allison.
Being a professional actor Miss Allison is fully aware of the audition standards for the industry.
With all age appropriate training and nurturing, our drama classes bring out the best in all our pupils whether serious about their drama or recreational. Learning can be fun.
Quote from Miss Allison
“It's wonderful to be back in the drama studio and being able to work more closely together. Drama relies on the actors making a connection with their fellow performers and it's fantastic to see how everyone's skills are developing.”😀

The Stephanie Williams memorial notice board is now up for all Friends of KH charity and KH CIC information.
Stephanie tragically passed away along side her father Reverend Barry Williams after suffering fatal injuries at a road traffic accident. Stephanie was 17 year old and a valued beautiful senior pupil of KH. Shortly after the tragedy in 1997 The Stephanie Williams scholarship was set up to be given to KH pupils who were noticed by the teachers to preserve in all subjects. Requested by Stephanie’s mum, Jeniffer, together with a beautiful trophy awarded for the same reason.
The Scholarship money wasn’t always given out each year but was cared for by the late John Raine, KH voluntary book keeper at the time and lasted, due to the generosity of Stephanie’s family and friends up to this day.
When Friends of KH become an official charity they suggest as the money for the scholarship was coming to an end that something lasting be bought in Stephanie’s name.
Miss Angela contacted Jeniffer and a vote took place regarding the memorial and the notice board geared for all weathers was purchased. We are looking forward to Mrs Jeniffer Williams visiting shortly to see what we hope is a lasting tribute to a beautiful young lady,
