Many congratulations to Sixth Former, Lauren, who gave committed, dynamic and truthful performances as both Paulina from Shakespeare’s “Winter’s Tale” and Marlene from Caryl Churchill’s “Top Girls” in her performance A level exam on Monday. She was ably supported by fellow Sixth Former Katie, who generously gave her time to learn the part of Angie as a non-assessed candidate. There was a tangible sense of the audience focus and involvement which is a credit to the girls. Well done also to the audience who withstood the intense heat of the Drama studio in good humour!
In Friday’s assembly Miss Wallis previewed a documentary by Sixth Former Holly which received a spontaneous round of applause from the rest of the girls. Holly produced a film for the Art History documentary competition called SPoKE. The competition encourages young people to think critically about art through the medium of film. Holly produced a film inspired by a recent exhibition she visited at Tate Modern entitled “Not Everyone Will Be Taken to the Future” by installation artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov. Holly’s film is a fantastic example of how her knowledge of History of Art has inspired her own creative process when making her own art for A Level Photography. Congratulations Holly for inspiring the school with this excellent piece of work.
Frank Fourth Formers were clearly inspired by a visit from Shooting Stars Chase’s Georgina in Tuesday’s House Assembly. Today they raised a massive £150.26 through a cake sale and have set the bar very high for the other year groups. Congratulations on your fabulous food fundraiser Frank Fourth Formers!!
