Mick in tune with school.

Ageing rocker Mick Jagger may not remember all his days in class but he has not forgotten his school - he has donated pounds 100,000 to help youngsters follow in his footsteps.

Dartford Grammar School in Kent announced today that the Rolling Stones legend has given the donation to further develop a music centre named in his honour.

The money will be spent on the Red Rooster project at the school's Mick Jagger Centre to encourage more children to start making music at an early age.

The extra donation comes two years after he officially opened the centre and said there had to be a balance between 'the things that feed your mind and the things that feed your imagination'.
