    Fuck knows why David Bowie keeps appearing in headlines for this school. You'd think he owned the school!

    So the Gigalum DJ bar has become the horrendously named 'Perky Nel' .

    Even though i would rarely go into Gigalum, they did have some decent big name DJ's playing on a Sunday (for free) which would be worth popping your head round for.

    Even without reading the marketing blurb, im sure this new inception will be a downgrade, and ill likely never step foot in the place.

    Wasn't Gigalum owned by the SW4 people? They must have had an offer they couldnt refuse from this 'Livelyhood Pub Group'.

    Does this mean a whole swathe of Antipodean ravers will be getting nostalgic for their Sunday sessions?

    And the shit has only hit the fan now because a small group of parents worked tirelessly and persistently for a year to expose the situation despite being fobbed off by Lambeth Council and (some of) the Governors at almost every stage. Note the school now also has a new Chair of Governors. Hopefully it's been a case of short-term pain for long-term gain. It's a great school, my child is doing really well there and enjoys it very much. There are some excellent teachers and teaching assistants in particular. Parents are very active and are now welcomed by the school since Ms Umekwe's departure. Onwards and upwards for this great Brixton school. And thanks to these parents for their hard work in making it possible.
