We would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Tilly (Year 10) who, last weekend, took part in prose reading at the Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts and was awarded a silver medal for her performance.
Open to students in Years 9-13, the prose reading challenged participants to deliver a prepared reading from their favourite book which, in Tilly’s case, is ‘Everything, everything‘. The adjudicator for this event was Eleanor McLeod – published author of two poetry books for children, teacher and member of the LAMDA examinations board.
“I really enjoyed performing the prose reading, especially as it was from one of my favourite books, Everything, Everything. I was a bit nervous to begin with, but it soon went away when I walked on stage. I was super chuffed to be awarded the silver medal because there were lots of great prose readings by the other contestants. Overall, I found it a brilliant experience, and will definitely do it again next year!”
Well done on this excellent achievement Tilly – we are proud of you!
