14 December 2018Panto Review

Message from Chair of the Parent Council

On behalf of all parents, many congratulations on a fantastic pantomime. Having seen a good number of school pantos over the past 15 years I can honestly say it was the most professional, humourous one I can remember. Everyone involved should be incredibly proud of themselves - actors, orchestra, lighting, sound, special effects, scenery, costume design and scenery - all brilliant. We all know how much hard work has gone into this from everyone but I'm sure every single person who went to see "The Little Mermaid" over the past two days will have left after the performance feeling happy and uplifted...and that is down to all of you.

Finally a huge thankyou to Mrs Kennedy and Mrs Campbell - without them it would not have happened, to all the staff who helped out on the night and of course to everyone who came and support our school.
