It was great to see so many parents and supporters of the school at the first night of our production yesterday night. We’re really looking forward to the final performance tonight. The staff and students have put such a huge amount of effort into West Side Story and it is brilliant to see it all coming together so well. You can see why the top universities like to see participation in school events such as plays and musicals from their applicants. The transferable skills involved are immense and include teamwork, working to deadlines, dealing with stress and focusing on producing the highest quality possible.
