Harris Battersea Sings and Shouts at the Pantomime
To celebrate their love of Performing Arts, Harris Battersea students from Key Stage 3 were treated recently to one of our most exciting annual traditions – the Pantomime!
Three coaches of excited students set off after school for an evening of laughing, singing, shouting, and applauding at the Peacock Theatre in London’s West End.
This year the story was Treasure Island, featuring everything from swashbuckling pirates to star-crossed lovers, from an oversized parrot to an overdressed dame. With a little help from our students, the courageous Jim Hawkins defeated the villainous Long John Silver, and the cheers and boos for both brought the house down!
Of course, we all learned the real treasure was not the gold and jewels of Captain Flint’s buried chest. No, the real treasure was the singalong at the very end! We’d like to praise Mr Myers specifically for showing great resilience and giving it his all!
After a fun, silly evening at the theatre, our students showed their integrity by returning to the coaches with no fuss and coming straight home. Well done to everyone who came along on our excellent evening out and represented the school so well, while having a good time doing it!
And now, sadly, the panto trip is behind us. Until next year, at least!
