What a week!!

 

Mrs Sullivan has had a very long and busy week!

We had our Christmas production of Beauty and the Beast on Tuesday. Here are a few comments we have received from parents…

 

Alex Patrick [Edie’s Mum in Neptune]

‘The show was fantastic today, everyone worked so hard.  I loved the band too and the girls singing - everything was great – we were so proud of the kids – hope it goes well tonight.

 

Sarah Gentleman [Edward’s Mum in Pluto]

Really, really great show yesterday.  Thank you

 

Marina Palmer [Clemmie’s Mum in Pluto]

It is without doubt one of the best school performances of any that I have been to. And I have been to many performances at many different schools.  The costumes and art work were spectacular. I felt so proud that Clemmie was part of it.

 

Harriet Oliver [Lettie’s Mum]

What a fabulous play that was this morning, it was the best yet, and all the children did so well! The wolves’ masks were absolutely brilliant, as was the set and music.  Natalia and Selasie stole the show!

Thank you so much and many congratulations to all involved.

 

Rachel Selby [George’s Mum in Neptune]

The play was brilliant, the hard work from you all shows on the stage, all the kids were excellent, it’s the best show that I have seen!

 

Mr. Mirza our producer, director writes…

Thank you to all staff, parents and performers for helping us to achieve a very special Christmas show this year.  The school really brought it together to create a magical story!!
