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.

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.”
