Thank you 4DM for bringing colour and vibrancy, smiles and enthusiasm to your ‘Arts Fortnight’. Through exploration and embracing new challenges, you have all bravely ‘had a go’ and because of this experienced many wow moments along your journey. Who would have thought that Oscar Wilde’s classic story, ‘The Selfish Giant’ could generate monologues, dialogues, letters, dance, drama and such stunning art work in the style of the artist Robert Kushner?
A big thank you also goes to Miss Allison for her wonderful choreography and sharing the importance of team work on so many levels. Trust in each other was certainly evidenced in your wall sections, whilst team work resulted in a delightful performance. The smiles and applause from your parents, sisters and interested adults was testament to your achievement.
Last but not least were the jam tarts you baked with Mrs Walker, and then wolfed down over tea and coffee in the cafe!
Here are some of the lovely comments from this afternoons celebration…
