Cockburn John Charles Academy presents ‘We Will Rock You’

Students at Cockburn John Charles Academy performed an incredible rendition of the classic Queen musical ‘We Will Rock You’ last month.

Over several months, the staff and students have worked extremely hard to perfect the music, choreography and performance. Their hard work and effort paid off as the students delivered memorable performances that set a new standard for future shows.

Hannah Davison, Leader of Dance, said,

“We are proud of each and every person involved in the show. Their passion was evident at every rehearsal which resulted in a show that was truly special.”

Siobhan Roberts, Head of School, added,

“Our annual school production is always one of the highlights of our performance calendar, and this year was no exception.

“I feel inordinately proud of the resilience and dedication of students and staff who have worked hard during the rehearsal process to hone the performance to a professional standard.”

While it may be another year until the next school show, the cast is already hard at work, devising and practising for the upcoming MADD Fest which celebrates all things creative, including music, dance and art, in the summer.
