Performing Arts Students Showcase Their Talents
/ Categories: News, Enrichment
Our Performing Arts students put on a show to remember to end the first half term of 2019.
The showcase featured the best from our Music, Dance and Drama classes, with students auditioning to take part in the popular after-school event.
Highlights included numbers from our SA Dance group and tap dance enrichment, along with musical pieces from the steel band and our choir – the latter of which performing the ‘The Sound Of Music’ classic ‘Do Re Mi’.
Our Drama contingent gave brilliant performances with the National Connections group, offering the audience a teaser for the competition piece they will perform in front of judges later in the year, while the school’s theatre company - Centre Stage – also shone.
Another memorable sketch came from the Year 8 group, who produced ‘Awkward’, which offered a comedic insight into some of life’s most uncomfortable situations.
Year 10 students Carys and Marcey sang solos of ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ and ‘Yours’ respectively, and the showcase closed with the school’s Rock Band – who received a standing ovation along with the rest of the performers on the night.
Mrs Campbell, Head of Expressive and Performing Arts, said: “Everyone can see that an awful lot of effort goes into putting on our showcase, and we are incredibly proud of our dedicated and talented students for delivering such a high standard on the night.
“A lot of the pieces were created during our after-school enrichment clubs and it’s really rewarding for everyone involved to be able to show off what they have accomplished in front of a real audience. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us and hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did!”
