For the second year in a row, our students have won the Hackney Schools Carnegie Shadowing Event Award for Best Performance.
Congratulations go to year 8 students Mohammed Kawsar, Malak, and Yordanas, and year 9 students Victor, Louis, Ellie-Marie, and Fatima. Their hard work rehearsing with Ms. Ray-Choudhuri shone through, as they gave a captivatingly confident performance of a dramatic physical piece inspired by the Carnegie Award Shortlisted novel After the Fire by Will Hill.
One of the judges on the day was Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give. Angie Thomas gave a hugely inspiring speech about her life and writing. The students were thrilled to have the opportunity to perform for her, and to get their copies of her novel signed.
