Powerful final performance from this special group of year 13 students
Our year 13 performing arts students have signed off in some style. Their final piece portrayed the struggles of a young woman facing the challenges of growing up with the usual twenty-first century pressures, but exacerbated by her schizophrenia.
Each of the students took a turn to act the central character, as she struggled with her inner demons and the unsympathetic attitudes of some of those around her. Clever use of sound and music, all chosen and arranged by the students, built an intimidating and claustrophobic atmosphere which drew the audience into the inner turmoil of the main character.
Pictured here are Amy Collins, Imogen Fraser, Tia Bartlett, Catherine Belcher and Megan Parsons.
For these students the performance marks their final contribution to the performing arts at Sackville, and the end of an involvement that for some of them goes back seven years.
We are going to miss them!
