Trust nothing…..Believe Everything!
Staff were incredibly proud of all the children who took part in the Rock Challenge Competition on Friday 17th February. They set off at 7.30am to Southampton, full of anticipation, a van full of stage setting, props, costumes, a 20ft pole….and of course a few butterflies in their tummies!
After a couple of rehearsals and a wonderful lunch in the park, the reality of the ‘real’ performance dawned upon them as they prepared for their performance. The dressing room oozed solidarity and shared excitement as the children changed into their magnificent costumes and were transformed into their characters….of course makeup and hair styles completed the final touches! A hush spread through the dressing room as the stage crew came to announce that it was time for their performance…..WOW! 8 minutes that changed the lives of their young people!
They became performers, artists, stage directors and entertainers and danced with every ounce of energy they possessed.
The evening concluded with the results…all huddled together in the dressing room watching it on a big screen, the children watched in anticipation! They cheered when they were awarded 9 separate awards in excellence as well as 3rd place….tears of happiness and hugs all round!
Well done St Mark’s…they must also mention that without the support of our volunteers they simply couldn’t make this happen. This truly was a time where their school community came together and they would like to extend a huge thank you to all those who supported and helped with this event, whatever your role, big or small – it was all much appreciated!
