It was centre stage for pupils from Saint Paul’s Catholic High School in Wythenshawe who recently took part in the school’s annual Summer performance which showcased the achievements of the Expressive and Performing Arts faculty. The evening was filled with music and dance from a variety of genres. During the interval the extensive range of work produced in the art department was projected for all to enjoy.
In particular, the dance involved in this year’s showcase demonstrated a culmination of a variety of styles, in which the BTEC Performing Arts students were marked for their Dance unit. The styles varied from Contemporary dance to The Charleston, each being very different. The evening was a superb opportunity for Saint Paul’s to showcase the talents of its pupils and was well received by all.
The event was especially important for the BTEC Music class as it also acted as their Assessment.
Head of Performing and Expressive Arts, Ms Ellie Brookes, added: ‘I am so proud of all the pupils involved in the showcase as each pupil has worked so hard for their performance including some pupils who had never performed before. I am immensely proud of my year 11 students and their achievements, they are a credit to this school and will be greatly missed.’
“The showcase was a joy to watch with some amazing singing and dancing performances,” said Head Teacher, Mr Wiktor Daron. “The production was imaginatively directed and sparkled with creativity and energy. The success of the show could be measured by the spontaneous and genuinely heartfelt applause of the audience.”
