Students and former pupils at Aylesbury High School have come together to organise a dance festival this Sunday in memory of their teacher who died over Easter.
Popular dance teacher Sally Surguy, who had worked at the school for more than 20 years, died in March, aged 60.
The much-loved teacher will now be remembered with a celebratory event to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, the Surguy family’s chosen charity.
Girls from Year 8 to 13 will take part in the festival alongside former students, emphasising the influence Mrs Surguy had at the school over the past two decades.
Paying tribute to Mrs Surguy back in April, headteacher Alan Rosen said: “We are all devastated to lose Sally, who motivated generations of girls to love dance and to put on the most fantastic performances.
“Her best qualities were her kindness and calmness.”
The festival was the brainchild of Sabina Calloway, a former student of the school, who came up with the idea in March and started the organisation via Facebook.
The performances will take place this Sunday at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets cost £5 and £3.50 and are available from the school office from 8.30am to 4.30pm.
