FHS Releases Charity Single

posted by Lucy Forster May 2, 2019 0 comments

At the funeral of our beloved colleague, Miriam McQueen, in February this year our Mundo Afrika Choir were asked to perform one of Miriam’s favourite songs, ‘You Got the Love’.  Following the moving performance, it was decided that the song would be recorded as a charity single to support The Brain Tumour Charity.  The recordings took place at Parr Street Studios in March and we are delighted to announce the single is now available to purchase online via iTunes, Amazon Music, Apple Music and Spotify.

The information below follows the development of this project and there is also a fantastic video which captures the recording at Parr Street Studios.

We hope the school community can once again come together, in honour of Miriam, to support The Brain Tumor Charity’s valuable work towards their aim to double survival rates by 2025 and, with all our help, they will be able to move ever closer to their vision of a world where brain tumours are defeated.

If you are an iTunes user, you can download the track by clicking here for just 79p or click here to download on Amazon Music.

The song is now available to stream on Apple Music please click here to access.

Other streaming platforms will also have the single to download, including GooglePlay, Spotify and Deezer. Please note that we don’t really earn anything from streaming services – but it does help spread the word!

You can also DONATE to the charity using this link.

THANK YOU!

KEVIN WILLIAMS MEMORIAL

posted by Lucy Forster April 10, 2019 0 comments

As the 30th anniversary of the Hillsborough tragedy approaches next Monday, Formby High School has once again come together to remember Kevin Williams, a Year 11 FHS student who sadly lost his life at Hillsborough.  It is now tradition for us to hold an annual penalty shoot-out in his name where our Year 11 football team takes on staff in a fun competition.  Kevin loved football and there is no better way for us to honour his memory than through this sport he loved, and to enjoy it together as a school community.  This year we also welcomed the crew of BBC Newsround who came along to film the event and do some interviews with some of our younger students about the importance of remembering Kevin and Hillsborough.

For the first time in quite a few years, the Year 11 team emerged victorious with a 12-10 victory – well done boys!

 

Throughout the event, members of our school community donated loose change towards the Kevin Williams Memorial Fund which the school will use to ensure his memory remains at the heart of the FHS community for many generations to come.  The new Kevin Williams Memorial Garden is in place outside the school entrance and we plan to develop this further over the years.  Thank you to everyone who has made contributions to this wonderful cause and further donations will always be most welcome.

Kevin, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’
