20/12/12 - Sister, Sister Success 
 
Staff and pupils today reflect on the highly successful Sister, Sister performances staged in the School Assembly Hall on Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th December. The community came out in force to support the school with over 1000 adults and children attending the 3 performances. This support for the school is very much appreciated. 
 
A massive thank you goes to all the pupils, staff and community members that contributed in any small way to the success of this event. Special mention must be given to Producer and Director Miss Louise Graham who commented "Congratulations to everyone involved in our production - what an amazing show! All the hard work really paid off. Thank you to the pupils and staff members who made it such a success - well done everyone! Have a great Christmas, you deserve it!" 
 
A DVD of the Wednesday night performance is now available for collection at the school office. Any individual still wishing to order a DVD (priced at £10) should contact the school office (02830 878246) as soon as possible - they would make an ideal Christmas gift!
