CDS hosts its third Annual Arts Festival

Posted on: 18/07/2018

CDS hosts its third Annual Arts Festival!

The Drama department presented performances from their GCSE controlled assessment exploring the theme of “suffering” and focusing in particular on the experiences in the concentration camps at Auschwitz.  The outstanding and highly emotive performances captivated guests.  It was based on different survivors’ stories and was a mixture of verbatim and docu-drama, stylistically. Monologues were taken from different survivors’ experiences - some from poetry and others from documentaries.

Dance students performed a variety of solo, duet and ensemble pieces and during the main reception guests were entertained by Music students whilst sampling the delightful and tasty canapes created by, and served by, students in Year 9 and Year 10 studying Food Technology, skilfully overseen by Mrs Howard and Mrs Williams. 

Outstanding work from Year 9, 10 & 11 students in Art and Year 11 in Design Technology, was on display and the School’s VI Unit also opened its doors to demonstrate the equipment it uses to aid the learning of its visually impaired students.  The ever popular Guide Dogs for the Blind were also in school talking to visitors about the work they do.

Special guests included the School’s sponsors and support was greatly received from The Deputy Mayor of Broadstairs, Councillor Leys, Craig MacKinlay MP, Mike Samson (Mike Samson Fine Art) and Dominic & Julie Grant (Sculptor).  The School would like to thank all of its supporters for attending this special event.

The generosity of the sponsors this year has been overwhelming and meant that Showcase Awards were presented to students for their outstanding contribution to the event.  All students worked extremely hard and the decision to award has been a very difficult one for Lead Teachers.  Awards include a Masterclass with The Pauline Quirke Academy, Festival Tickets for Wheels and Fins, vouchers for Westwood Cross and Hobbycraft to name but a few. Each donation from the sponsors made the whole event a fantastic and motivational experience for the students.  Support was also received from Smartshow UK in the form of an LED programme of the event.

Grateful thanks go to those sponsors: Schoolwear Centre; Independent Catering; Pauline Quirke Acadamy; Corby’s Tea Rooms; Drink Warehouse UK; Westwood Cross; Carlton Cinema Westgate; Wheels and Fins Festival; Fuji Films, Hornby Hobbies; Thorley Taverns; Tesco; The Bike Shed Kent and the School’s own P.F.A for their kind sponsorship and donations towards this event.  Also thanks to staff and parents for their continuing support in inspiring the students to excel in their given field.
