Performing Arts News

Performing Arts lessons have continued with a lot of enthusiasm and joy in the Junior School this term. The boys have shown outstanding commitment and dedication in their creative pursuits. Boys in Year 1 have been demonstrating their ability to discuss and implement a variety of musical elements like little rock stars; the Year 2 lads have just performed a beautiful tribute to their marvelous mums whilst truly grasping the concept of 'music for a purpose'; boys in Year 3 and 4 have gone tribal, creating and performing primitive dance sequences that tell a story. Finally, the Year 5 boys have been working steadily towards their goal of creating and performing the best musical ever and what fun we have been having! Their efforts have been made all the more impressive given how incredibly busy they have been of late. The highlight of my week was receiving a video from the beautiful Mrs Roche of the 5A lads practising the musical songs during their Visual Arts lesson - just divine!
