An impressive 36 St Leonards Junior School pupils took to the stage at the ‘Perform in Perth’ festival from 7 – 8 March, with many achieving first class certificates and top three positions in their classes.
Across the board, the young performers were commended for their imagination, understanding of comedy timing and confidence on stage.
Categories ranged from prepared reading for different age groups to verse speaking and Bible reading.
Top marks were awarded to a number of St Leonards pupils, including first, second and third place in the age 9-10 Prepared Reading.
Drama is a core part of both curricular and co-curricular learning at St Leonards, and whilst Perform in Perth may have passed, pupils are now busy preparing for two Junior School productions at the end of Spring Term.
Year 7 will present ‘The Incredible Vanishing’ by Denise Coffey, while this term’s Year 4-6 play is ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’, written by Nichola McQuade-Powell, Director of Drama at St Leonards, and adapted from the books by Enid Blyton.
