School puts on a show

CHILDREN at Blackhorse Primary School’s Performing Arts Club put in months of work to bring their performance of Aladdin to the stage.

The school’s performing arts club rehearsed for eight months after school, and at weekends in the weeks leading up to the annual spring performance.

Head of school Neil Fry said: “The children showed such amazing personal growth whilst rehearsing for the performance.

“Several main characters used to be very shy, but now sing solos without a second thought.

“We also are incredibly lucky to have a team of staff who volunteer to work with the children in their own time to make these performances possible – we simply couldn’t do these amazing shows without their generosity.”

Executive head teacher Simon Botten said: “We also have a fabulous PTA which has kitted out our hall with state-of-the-art sound, light and staging equipment, which means the children get to experience a professional performance environment.”
