Staff and students rock in school production
It has been many years since the Bicester School has been able to put on a school production and this December we brought them back with a bang!
In July the newly-established Creative Arts team started auditions for ‘School of Rock’. We had a huge number of very talented students auditioning for parts and we were lucky enough to be able to ensure that no one missed out. Since then, students and staff have been rehearsing twice a week after school, as well as Saturdays, in preparation for the performances which took place on 15th and 16th of December.
On both nights, in front of packed houses, students and staff did themselves proud – the show truly did justice to ‘the power of rock’! Both performances were huge successes – parents, staff and students all enjoyed the show and we were pleased to receive so many positive comments about the professionalism of the event and how well everyone had done.
This was a huge undertaking and could not have happened without members of staff throughout the school supporting the event; designing the promotion, painting the set, selling tickets, supervising students, and selling mince pies and gingerbread for the ‘Sarah Day charity’. The PTA did a fantastic job of providing a bar with drinks and snacks.
We are especially grateful to the members of the community who also came to help us with the lights, sound, hair and makeup. This was a team effort and everyone involved has worked extremely hard. We are truly honoured to have the privilege of working with such talented and dedicated students and staff, who did themselves and the school proud – we cannot wait for next year!
