Speech and Drama
This year’s Speech and Drama went well and was
enjoyed by all.
Throughout the two days of the Speech and Drama section we watched
poems, Pantomime, murder mysteries, diary readings and a range of
readings that show cased original short stories and poems. Our
Adjudicator, Jonathan Owen, thoroughly enjoyed the experience
expressing his delight at the range of pieces and poems he saw.
It was a pleasure to see the children and adults taking part in a variety of
performances throughout the two days. It was great to have so many local
schools involved, with children of all ages taking part. The children
showed great courage to get up on stage and recite the poetry as many of
them had never attempted this before. It is lovely that the teachers and
support staff took time to organise the performances. The Pantomime
section was well received with some students and groups being on stage
for the first time ever doing this type of theatre.
We look forward to 2019 to see what fantastic performances everyone will
entertain us with.
