On Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 February our canteen at Limanowskiego was turned into a theatre to allow 7 schools from across Warsaw to compete in the first ‘Curried Clowns Theatrical Variation.’ As the hosting school we were allowed to enter both the Primary competition on Saturday and the Secondary competition on Sunday.
On Saturday our Year 6 students, performed beautifully in ‘World War 2, out of the Arc’. However they were up against tough competition from The Canadian School of Warsaw
with their very funny rendition of the Twits. We were awarded the ‘Marek’ award for best
On Sunday our Secondary team put everything they had into ‘Romeo and Juliet ... or a
version thereof’, a play written by our very own Mr Jones. I think it was safe to say that they
absolutely ‘smashed it’, bringing home 4 out of a possible 8 awards. We were awarded best
play and best staging. Marci Pietka and Pati Pont won the Director’s Special Award and Leti Martinez took the award for Best Actress.
“Being involved in this play has been a great experience for me particularly because it taught me a lot about team work. It was really fun to act with my friends but difficult not to laugh when I was on stage! However, Mrs Fox finally showed us how to do that (… and boy was that difficult! –ed.) and it’s thanks to her and the rest of the cast that we won so many awards.
For me, it was the first time that I had ever acted in a play and Mrs Fox and the other cast members really helped me. We were very happy when the judges announced the winners of four of the awards"
