Students from Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar in Alford participated in a range of stimulating activities as they enjoyed their annual Creativity Day last week (July 1).

As part of this year’s Enrichment Programme, a number of practitioners visited the school to lead workshops in Taiko drumming, drama, street dance and recording a radio programme, whilst the whole of Year 12 enjoyed a performance of the comedy ‘A Hard Act To Follow’ by Hambledon Productions at the Manor House.

Other curriculum areas also offered students a range of creative activities including a Ready Steady Cook competition, constructing catapults, creative photography, creating a sound-track for film, and producing a stop-frame animation.

Designing and launching an air rocket proved particularly popular - the good weather enabling Year 10 students to propel their home-made efforts to record distances across the school field.

“Students thoroughly enjoyed the day, and many intend to develop their talents in the activities in which they participated,” said a spokesperson.
