Last month a group of Year 8 and 9 students gave up their weekend to participate in a Drama workshop by Mark Worth from the performance company Highly Sprung.
The workshop, which was based on Highly Sprung’s 2016 performance Witness, explored many of the issues that teenagers face such as Social Media and Exams.
Students explored these issues through movement and physical theatre, developing new performance skills and techniques. It was two days of hard work but the students were fantastic and by the end of the weekend they had produced a performance which they can be very proud of.
“It was brilliant to see students challenged, working with students who they don’t normally have the opportunity to work with, and performing in a new way. What was really impressive was the way students rose to that challenge, producing a really high quality performance.” Commented Miss Julius, Leader of Learning for Performing Arts.
