Gabe Geary (Year 7) had his first engagement as Silk King 2018 at the recent Barnaby Parade. He was fantastic and very mature. He waved at everyone and met the new Mayor afterwards. He went on to visit Macclesfield Hospital to meet patients on the rehab ward where he was described as “just amazing”. He greeted each patient, spoke to them, answered their questions and shook each hand and said he was pleased to meet them as he left their bedsides. He reduced two of the lady patients to tears as they said he was so lovely! We are delighted that the Shelby, the Silk Queen, will be joining the Macclesfield Academy in September.
