Alverton School was transported to the South Pacific in the last week of May with truly fabulous and inspirational performances from our Key Stage 2 children as they performed the Disney show Moana Jr.
The Years 5 and 6 Drama Club spend the year preparing for and rehearsing the annual musical production and these children were amazing from the outset. They worked incredibly hard and their enthusiasm and commitment made the whole process a hugely enjoyable experience.
This time of year always highlights just how lucky we are to have such talented, creative and dedicated staff, many of whom support us to prepare for the production beforehand and on the nights of the performances themselves. We are extremely fortunate to have such a supportive wider school community who help with costumes, sound and more.
Our annual musical production is one of the highlights of the school calendar and, every year, it engenders a huge sense of team spirit, fun and enjoyment and emphasises Alverton’s real strengths as a whole-school community with parents, families, friends, staff and children working together to create something spectacular with the children that they will never forget.
Mr Higgs said: “This year’s production of Moana has felt particularly special because it is three years since our last show and, even at the beginning of this year, we weren’t entirely certain that we would be able to put it on. Moana was another example of the exceptionally high standards which are set by our children and staff. The quality of every detail of the show reflects the care and time which everyone has so selflessly invested in it. Thank you to everyone who supported it and to all those involved, particularly of course, our exceptionally talented children.”
