Youngsters face the music

Performing arts week at Meridian School

TALENTED students have been taking to the stage at a school’s performing arts week.

The Meridian School in Royston held a programme of events last week, featuring a wide range of drama and music events.

David Atkins, assistant head teacher at Meridian, said: “The whole week was a great success, thanks to all staff and students from Meridian and our partner schools, who helped to make it such a wonderful week.”

Indeed, Meridian students were joined by pupils from Greneway, Roysia, Icknield Walk, Studlands Rise, Tannery Drift, Roman Way, Therfield, Reed, Barley and Barkway schools for a Friday afternoon performance of Joseph and his amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

A drama workshop on the essential Michael Jackson also proved popular, while Wednesday saw the famous “Live on the Line” cabaret event rock the school, with performances from 50 Meridian pupils.

Mr Atkins added: “There was a real range of music, from Colonel Bogey March, through artists such as Duffy and West End Shows, to The United States of Eurasia by Muse. A packed audience had a super evening’s entertainment.”
