STAR students have returned to Hall Garth Community Arts College to tell of their successes and goals.

NEIL HAINSWORTH, 22, of West Lane, and NATHAN JOHNSTON, 19, of Grove Hill, both Middlesbrough, attend the London Contemporary Dance School, where Neil has just completed his final year. They both began dancing at Hall Garth when teacher Nicola Robinson launched GCSE dance. …
