Congratulations Coventry Drama Festival

When the experienced and highly regarded adjudicator announces to the packed auditorium of parents and performers that she has just witnessed “the best choral speaking she has ever had the pleasure to judge”, previous best was seen in Hong Kong apparently, you know that your drama pupils have done you proud yet again!

Children from Upper Infants, Juniors, Years 7, 8 & 9 all scored fantastic marks of 90 & above with polished, expressive performances that had the audience laughing and cheering with delight. Outstanding marks! However, Year 8 & 9 won the overall trophy for highest mark with an astonishing 95 marks! The highest mark any choral group I’ve tutored has ever achieved in competition.

My thanks to every pupil who attended and gave of their brilliant best and special thanks to the ever supportive parents who gave up part of their weekend to help make this such a memorable occasion for all concerned. I have received numerous messages of congratulations from other members of the audience who enjoyed the performances given by Pattison pupils and I know that parents and families will have been as super proud of the children as I was as their teacher.

Bethany’s Wish

Congratulations to the students, pupils and staff who gave up their time on Sunday to perform in the Bethany’s Wish production, “Time To Shine”, at the Albany Theatre. With their help, an amazing £2,358.86 was raised, which will go directly towards helping children like Bethany, a former dance pupil, funding vital research for childhood kidney cancers.
