Pupils from King’s Hall School recently dismissed their normal routine in favour of their annual Arts Week celebrations. The exciting week-long event sees the school community come together for a series of creative workshops, performances and visits.
This year, the school was delighted to welcome leading children’s author, Abi Elphinstone, and world-renowned writer, Marcus Sedgewick, who both gave fascinating talks. King’s Hall was also happy to welcome Year 5 pupils from St George’s Primary School, who joined them for the event.
During the week, there was also an Adventure Playground design activity, Shakespearean drama workshop, and spectacular outdoor performance of Sleeping Beauty by Year 4 pupils. The event concluded with the opening of the school’s new science labs, which saw pupils take part in a plasma workshop before enjoying a thrilling musical finale from the King’s College Big Band.
Headmaster at King’s Hall, Justin Chippendale, said: “The children – and adults – have been so privileged to spend time in the company of some impressive people.” He added: “They have been inspired by the energy, talent and persistence of those involved in our wonderful Arts Week programme. It has certainly been a very uplifting few days.”
