This week we began a focus on the plight of the people in Syria who have become refugees. Collective Worship in the theatre has been lead by a team of 6th Form Students. Paige Adamson, Harry Butler, Alex Rustill, and Savannah Crosby researched, wrote and performed a moving piece of drama telling the story of four refugees and their families. Students and staff who have watched this have left theatre in silence, demonstrating the poignancy and impact of this presentation.
Furthermore, this week everyone shared in an academy Service of Remembrance on Armistice Day. This was confidently lead by a team of students in years 9, 10 and 11 who reminded us of the significance of the poppy and how it expresses our ongoing solidarity with all who are impacted by conflicts, past and present. The two minute’s silence was observed by students and staff in the theatre, the sports hall and in classrooms. Special thanks to Kacie who played the Last Post and Reveille live, a high pressure musical performance which enhanced the solemnity of the occasion.
