AT ORMISTON Park Academy, it is all about the community. So the school has flung its doors open for a grand christmas fayre.
YourThurrock spoke to deputy head, Collette Hunnisett about the evening and the further plans the school has for 2011.
This was also the last day for head of performing arts at OPA, Rosalyn Farrugia. The much-loved Roz is returning to Australia from whence she came.
The school and the borough will miss her. Roz has a rare talent as a drama teacher and was able to get the very best out of the students.
