Students performed songs and poetry they wrote for the occasion as well as dance routines they have developed with the dance and drama department. Parents and guests were invited to the show and party and enjoyed a 100th birthday cake as the school began 100 events to mark their centenary.
Headlands Principal, Matt Burns, said: “Putting on a theatre show to start our centenary celebrations is very fitting as our students are so creative and engaged. Their shows are always incredible and sum up the spirit of the school and all we’re trying to achieve here.
I’m so proud to be leading the school as we reach this historic landmark. It’s the perfect time to reflect on how the school has moved with the times and always embraced innovative approaches to the challenging conditions our students face every day. The commitment and passion all our staff show here is humbling and that is reflected in how our students respond and the great strides they make while at Headlands School”.
Action for Children’s national director for Wales, Brigitte Gater, said: ‘Congratulations to Headlands School as it reaches its centenary. They do extraordinary work at the school and the way they involve and engage the students to achieve so much is always inspirational. We are very proud of Headlands and I look forward to joining the celebrations throughout their centenary year.’
