Year 8 Performing Arts Drop Down Day
On Wednesday 10th November our Year 8 students participated in a Performing & Creative Arts drop down day. The purpose of the day is to develop students’ passion, creativity, and excellence within the performing and creative arts – the academy’s specialism.
All of the sessions were centred on the theme of ‘Carnival’ and students took part in a variety of externally lead performing and creative art workshops based around this; ranging from learning to play the steel pans to creating their very own carnival costumes.
The overall feedback from students was that they really enjoyed the day and it was great to see how excited and proud they were to show off their work. You may have seen students arriving home wearing their t-shirts with pride, showing off their carnival eye make-up, or telling you about the range of activities they enjoyed at school that day.
It was great to see the whole year group really immerse themselves in the experience and we hope their passion and creativity for the arts continues throughout their time here at KAA.
