Last week was year 4SC’s class performance centred on the 1911 Scott-Amundsen RACE TO THE POLE!
Our performance was littered with excellent portrayals of real historical characters. Anchoring the play was Leila Bott as the narrator with her BBC news anchor tones. Captain Robert Falcon Scott himself was played by Benedetta, who became Robert(a) Falcon Scott. And, our Scandinavian intrepid explorer Amundsen was carried off with aplomb by Yao Shi.
It was a story rich in authenticity and fable as some evidence was left behind but other facets of the story had to be imagined, such as the march into the void by Captain Oats to save his comrades, played by Nicholas Wade.
The show was beautifully concluded by a class rendition of ‘Song for Antarctica’ and a message to the youth of the world to keep Antarctica safe for posterity.
