Priory School Celebrates Isle Of Wight Music, Dance And Drama Festival Success

Priory School is celebrating its successes in the Speech and Drama section of the Isle of Wight Music, Dance and Drama Festival last week.

The pupils took part in verse speaking, prose recital, solo acting and duologue classes and they ‘placed’ in every class they took part in.

Among the successes were the first-place winners in the following classes:

  • Lovella-Faith Holland, 8 Years Verse Speaking
  • Ruby Hart, 8 – 9 Years Prose Speaking
  • Ann Spicer, 10 – 11 Years Duologue
  • Sam Spicer, 10 – 11 Years Duologue
  • Alexia Lake, 11 Years Verse Speaking
  • Isaac Soar, 11 Years Verse Speaking
  • Emma Ross, 12 Years Verse Speaking

All of the pupils were excited with their win, and Lovella-Faith Holland exclaimed:

“Awesome! I really didn't expect to win.”

Speech and Drama teacher at the school, Jeni Law, said:

"I am so proud of all the children who took part. Some were only just six years old and I know they were quite nervous.

"It is incredibly brave to stand and speak on a stage in front of people, especially when you are so young. It was lovely to see the older ones supporting the younger ones and really demonstrated the community approach fostered within the school.”

In total, the pupils participated in 14 classes and returned to school with a haul of seven first places, seven second places and eleven third places..

Mr David EJJ Lloyd, Principal, added:

“I am incredibly proud of all our pupils, regardless of their placings.

"They have worked hard and practised for many months and really enjoy their work with Ms Law, to whom we are all very grateful.”
