SPECIAL FEATURE:  

It’s day three of metal, and that was Iron Maiden with Be Quick… Heavy metal music certainly achieved global domination, and one of it’s worldwide standouts is Iron Maiden. These pioneer rockers from East London are one of the most successful heavy metal bands in history. They are known for their galloping rhythm, amazing lyrics, and fascinating imagery. In the song “Be Quick…” the band plays a blazing ode to banking scandals, stock market crashes, and corporate greed.

And a big shout out to Max who found money on the field on Monday and turned it in to the office.  The student who lost it was super happy to have it returned. Thanks for doing the right thing Max.  Well done – you’re amazing!
