Almost 90 pupils from Saint Paul’s Catholic High School in Wythenshawe took part in an Arts Awards evening where they were able to showcase their performance skills.
The talented Year 9 pupils enjoyed their few minutes of fame which contributed to them obtaining their “Arts Award Silver” qualification. The evening was a great success with many solo, group and duet performances taking places ranging from popular keyboard pieces, excerpts from plays such a ‘Bloody Brothers’ and ‘Two’ and choreographed dance routines.
“The pupils, despite being very nervous in the lead up to both evenings, had a great time with many remarking that they had had a brilliant experience, learnt lots of new skills and some even asking if they could perform again in the next showcase!” explained Ms Rachael Johnson, Music teacher at Saint Paul’s. “It was wonderful to see all their efforts come to fruition as they performed on stage.”
“The performance was a joy to watch with some brilliant individual performances,” said Head Teacher, Mr Wiktor Daron. “The pupils showed great skill and enthusiasm and they all deserve plaudits for their contributions. It was a great boost for their self-confidence.”
