30th June 2017
This week Riding Lights Theatre Company visited Trinity as part of their UK tour. They performed three bible stories in Prep Assembly with vibrancy, energy, fun and humour and sang Amazing Grace beautifully to finish off their performance. It was a real WOW moment in Prep with pupils and staff engrossed and hugely enjoying it. They then ran two workshops for years 7 and 8 on conflict resolution and injustice. These sessions were a mixture of games, discussion, performance drama and 'Forum Theatre' which enabled the pupils to contribute and get involved in solving a conflict situation played out in role play. It was absolutely brilliant and a number of our pupils showed great confidence in getting up and acting. Learning and fun working together!
