IT is a case of four legs good, two legs bad for students at Freman College who are putting on a production of Animal Farm.

The adaptation of George Orwell's allegory of the Russian revolution is being performed by students in Year's 9 and 10.

"I was really impressed, not just by the students' performance skills but also the maturity of their understanding."
