With the Youth Theatre in charge we had a very smooth Parent Presentation at our Wierda Park studio

Last Friday we had the privilege of watching our very talented students as they took to the stage for their Mid Year Parent Presentation! From our littlest student all the way through to our teenagers the audience was entertained! It was clear from the laughter and clapping that they thoroughly enjoyed the show!!

Parent Presentations

Wow! We have had a very exciting past 2 weeks!
Larisa Lauren and I have had the privilege of watching 15 parent presentations!

The students thoroughly enjoyed having a platform in which to demonstrate what they have been doing in class...from Storybook Adventure to Bats in a Cave to a very energetic Cities and of course who could forget William Tell?

Thank you to our wonderful parents and friends who came to give encouragement and support!

Over the next week watch this space - we will be posting pictures from our different studios!

Drama is finished for the term - enjoy the holidays and we look forward to seeing everyone back in July!
