Saturday 19 October, in follow up to the Local Democracy Week launch of The Three Rivers Climate Change Strategy, the PTFA and associated presented a Carbon Capture talk. Two of our Year 12 Environmental team Georgia and Jason, and Year 10 members of the Eco-gardening team, Beth, Llia and Abigail, made brilliant presentations at the Carbon Capture talk in the ASC on Saturday morning where they talked about Climate change issues and our conference.
The Debate Society recently entered a team of eight students into the regional round of the European Youth Parliament. Given the high standard of the other debaters we were honoured to be chosen as the winners. As a result the team have qualified to proceed to the National Session of the European Youth Parliament in Liverpool this September. This is a four-day event that will bring together 150 participants from across the UK and Europe to engage with the theme:
‘Overcoming the Challenges of Political and Economic Globalization’.
The bi-annual musical was in final dress rehearsal over the last weekend. All cast, musicians, technical and support crew were in over Saturday and Sunday making sure everything is perfect for opening night on Thursday.
The production of Sister Act follows on the success of High School Musical back in 2017. It is fantastic to see some returning cast members but lost of new faces.
Massive congratulations to the musicians who are playing in the band – a three-volume score to rehearse with some piece 200 bars long! It is excellent experience for those with their sights set on careers as professional musicians.
The Technical Production crew do an outstanding job with all of the lighting and sound, many of the Sixth Form use these experiences to support applications to Media and Production courses at University. It is great hands on experience, all supported by our Alumni and volunteer Jonathan.
Without volunteers like Jonathan and the committed staff from Music and Drama these productions couldn’t go ahead. The talent and professionalism from the students has been remarkable over the weekend… bring on 2021 and the next one!
The show begins it’s three-night run on Thursday 21 March, tickets are available from the Finance Office.
