    Monologues of Shakespeare's
    A2
    The students prepared, researched and performed a monologue as a character from one of Shakespeare’s plays. The A2 students that perform in the festival were selected from the entire year group for their demonstration of skills, confi- dence and understanding of their character.
    Extracts from 'A Mid-Summer Night's Dream'
    IGCSE A
    IGA students have been working on creating comedy and physical humour with two sets of characters from this play. The lovers who are in a love dilemma and whose emotions keep switching due to magic. This scene is focused on the two men fighting over Helena. Poor Hermia finds herself confused and blames her childhood friend.
    Pantomime 'Jack and the Bean Stalk'
    IGCSE B
    The student’s first experience of Pantomime was in the Christmas assembly when the staff performed a pantomime of ‘Cinderella’. Pantomime is an annual event in most theatres in the UK that involves humour and larger than life char- acters retelling a traditional fairy tale in a comedic way for family audiences. This is a story of a poor boy who wants to be rich!
    'The Crucible'
    A2 Theatre Studies
    The Theatre Studies class have been studying this very dramatic and deep play based partly on the true events that took place in Salem, Massachusetts, USA during 1692 and 1693. The story is about a town affected by rumors of witchcraft but more importantly the deterioration of rules, morality, relationships and community with everyone including Judge Danforth is focused on finding blame in others such as Abigail, John and Tituba.

    Late in Morning 11:50 AM - 12:30 PM
    Trash Fashion Show
    Every year we throw away millions of tons of waste plastic, paper and fabric. The Trash Fashion ECA was set up to show students how something that we throw away can be recycled into something different, exciting and in some cases beauti- ful. If something does not fit anymore why throw it away why not add new material, decorate it, make it into something new.....be creative. Students have enjoyed fol- lowing the Journey of a piece of waste material as they have transformed it into a new piece of wearable fashion and Art.
    'Journey to China'
    VPA Ambassadors
    As part of the theme journey we asked our VPA Ambassadors to give their western teachers an opportunity to share their feelings and experiences since they have moved to China. In addition to this, a chance to share the differences in culture be- tween their country of origin and here.

    One of the aims of the International friendship group is to learn about other students and communities across the world widening the students’ knowledge and understanding of the people their own age in lands where life is different in many ways to their own, sometimes good and some- times not so good.
    We have a links with schools in Kampala Uganda, Monmouth College in the US and a school in Ghana. The school in Ghana is suffering a drought at the moment and food is scarce. The International Friendship Group will be raising money to buy some rice for them as part of the VPA festival “Journey”. They will do this by a cake and craft sale and also en- couraging students to bring in their small coins they may have from any journeys they have made to other countries. We will make a line of coins from different countries from the Main school to the Arts block to signify a journey across the world.
