Pirates Vs Mermaids[/caption]
'Shiver me timbers' - what a performance! This morning we were treated to a wonderful show by the children in Milepost 1.
Captain Scarypants, a pupil at 'Me Hearty High School', was the model student until his secret slipped out; he had a terrifying fear of water! If he wanted to pass his 'Arrr Levels' he was going to have to conquer his fear. His only hope was to ask his arch enemies, the mermaids, for help. With his classmates and a carrot (which his classmates pointed out should have been a parrot), they set off to the secret mermaid cave. After more adventures, Captain Scarypants learnt to swim and then saved the mermaids from a vicious crocodile. In the end, the mermaids and pirates were not quite friends but they certainly weren't enemies any more, and they had learnt the lesson that it was important to face your fears. The last word went to the parrot - squawk!
In front of a large audience of parents, teachers and the rest of the school, the children in Milepost 1 did a fantastic job. They clearly had worked very hard to learn all their lines, they sang with gusto and stayed in character the whole time; pirates being fierce and mermaids being sophisticated! It was of course, a great team effort, and a huge thank you needs to go to all the teachers, teaching assistants and other members of staff for all their hard work.
