Learners at The Grange School really do know how to make a song and dance of things. They can also draw on their own inspiration to create stunning original art works. So, when the talented young people and their teachers decided to put on a celebration of all things arty – they certainly weren’t short of material. More than 700 learners contributed to the school’s first ever creative arts showcase.
A packed audience of family, friends, invited guests and members of the wider Grange family converged on the school for the two hour spectacular.
The Grange’s head of creative arts, Joel Beavon, who organised the event, said: “We have so many talented young people at The Grange and we really wanted to celebrate this with the entire school community. The arts and performance are crucial to a well-rounded education and they can really help to build a young person’s confidence and self-esteem.
“Events like this are character-building. Exhibiting and performing in front of others is a challenge and tests the soft skills that we encourage learners at The Grange to develop each day.”
