Events » What’s new pussycat?

Date: 17/12/2014

I played the supporting lead in the play ‘What’s New Pussycat?’ and the whole experience was incredible. After a timid audition I was given the part of Harriet, a mill worker and the owner of Puss. We were a cast of around thirty students from Years 7 through to 10. Rehearsing after school and at weekends, we pushed ourselves with our singing, dancing and acting. It was hard work. When the night of the performance came on the 17th of December the nerves definitely kicked in. Backstage was a bustling mixture of apprehension and hairspray. The chorus opened the play and I remember standing in the wings shaking as my scene came nearer. As I walked on stage the stage lights shone brightly in my eyes and the audience stared up at us. I was jittery at first but once the initial shock of hundreds of pairs of eyes watching me wore off, I could enjoy the performance. We didn´t need to worry – it went perfectly! Everyone was great and the standing ovation was our reward. On the first night of two it happened to be my birthday and along with applause the whole cast sang to me. It was a wonderful moment that brought us all together and signalled the end to a great night. I would like to say a huge thank you to Claire, our choreographer, Tess, our costume designer, and of course to Shelley and Johnny, our directors, who work so hard to make this opportunity available to us.

This year I took part in the school play playing the part of Girl 2. We rehearsed like crazy and I think that the audience could tell that we had worked very hard to remember all our lines and dance moves. Backstage was the hair, makeup and costume department and they did a great job. Clare choreographed some fantastic dances. Sydney and Zoe were the main characters and they gave a professional performance. There were lots of songs to learn and I loved learning the dance to the song “All the Single Ladies” by Beyoncé.

Last week, 10 staff from Morna gave up their weekend to attend the annual National Association of British Schools in Spain conference in Valencia. As well as including important updates about child protection, safeguarding and educationally related laws, there were also a number of training workshops designed to help teachers improve teaching and learning in schools. These workshops not only benefitted the staff that attended, but the information was also shared with staff throughout our school.
We are always looking to improve at Morna, and we make a major investment in the training and development of our staff each year.
The NABSS conference is one small part of this, but the fact that so many staff were keen to attend, shows their commitment to this process.
Our staff are always looking to do what is best for the students of our school, and this is another example of that.
Have a great weekend.

Last week, Y10 students visited the “Parque Natural de las Salinas” with their Spanish teachers. They learned about the sea turtle species which have come to the island to lay their eggs in the last years. Students did a simulation of the nest translocation protocol that is carried out by environment agents and scientists when a turtle trace is found.
