Staff Play – Once Knightly

On the last week of term, the staff performed an after-school play for charity. It was a tale of an evil Baron attempting to seize the Castle from the good Baron. The Princess was soon imprisoned in a tower by the witch and the Dragon Hotpoint before she was rescued by a dishonest knight. A resistance formed in the forests and Baron Bruno was defeated by Edmund, and all lived happily ever after. The staff would like to thank Mrs Cope for directing the play and leading the cast, and to all those who helped or came along to support the evening. All who took part in it enjoyed it immensely, and many of them said how much they enjoyed the opportunity to do something different all together. We hope the audience enjoyed it, because we did. Certainly, many a star was born as many staff took to the stage for the first time. The pupil’s behaviour and support were wonderful and much appreciated by all who took part and we are already looking forward to returning with a different play next year!

The evening was to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, a cause that is very dear to a large number of us, as we have either lost family members to Cancer, or had family members whose lives have been impacted by the disease. The staff would like to thank all who came along to support and watch them and are proud to announce that the evening raised £334 for charity.
