Arts Festival 2017

Posted on: 08/08/2017

At the end of term, the School hosted its’ second Arts Festival, the brain child of special guest, and former teacher at the School, Mr Dave Oldcorn. 

Drama hosted performances of a moving excerpt from their GCSE exam piece “Beyond the Death Gates” which captivated guests including the Mayor and Mayoress of Broadstairs, St Peter’s, Councillor Peter and Mrs Frances Shaw, Sir Roger Gale MP along with visitors from the Turner Contemporary and East Kent College.  The dramatisation was based on Auschwitz survivors.

Dance students performed a variety of solo, duet and ensemble pieces from students and during the main reception guests were entertained by Y11 Music students whilst sampling the colourful canapes produced and served by those Y10 studying Food Technology.

Outstanding work from Year 11 students in art, design technology and graphics was on display and the School’s VI Unit also opened its doors to demonstrate the equipment it uses to aid the learning of it’s visually impaired students.  The ever popular Guide Dogs for the Blind were also in school talking to visitors about the work that they do.

Further into the School and Visually Impaired Archery was demonstrated by Lewis March.  An adapted arrow with a marker on the quill helps the archer with his aim.  The skill displayed by Lewis was exceptional.

Grateful thanks go to our sponsors Fire Technology International, Brown & Mason, Tesco, Asda and the School’s own P.F.A for their kind sponsorship of this event, and also thanks to staff, students and parents for their continuing support.
