Thank you so much you are a lifesaver in the truest sense.
Pupils, Parents and Staff were treated to a musical feast, where 24 pupils performed at Treorchy Comprehensive Schools’ annual ‘Going Solo’ concert. Pupils from Year 7 up to Year 13 performed solo pieces from well-known Broadway musicals such as Wicked and Hamilton, to Disney classics such as The Wizard of Oz.
Every year the ‘Going Solo’ concert gets bigger and bigger and on this year’s evidence, the talent and the standard of performances are getting better and better.
This concert was the first in a number of events that are to be staged by the Performing Arts Department this year:
Monday 10th December - Christmas Concert
Tuesday 29th January – Instrumental Going Solo
19th, 20th, 21st February - Senior Production – The Wedding Singer
Tuesday 26th March - Transition Concert
25th, 26th, 27th June - Dance Back to Broadway
The Dance department has had a busy first half term of the new school year. They have welcomed visitors to the school, who have worked with pupils to develop their performance in a variety of dance styles.
Year 7 boys participated in a breakdancing workshop with Avant Cymru. After enjoying exhilarating demonstrations and being instructed in the skills and techniques involved in breakdancing, the department are hoping to be successful in receiving external funding. This would then mean being able to host a breakdancing club which will run on a weekly basis at Treorchy Comprehensive School.
Our senior dancers had a fantastic opportunity to work with Ballet Cymru on a 2 day residential project. The school senior dancers rehearsed alongside the professional dancers and choreographed a ballet piece based on the theme of friendship and support. The school performers then had the opportunity to perform it as a curtain raiser before the company’s performance of Cinderella in the Park and Dare Theatre.
Fifty girls from years 7-11 went to the House of Sport in Cardiff for an introductory rugby session with the Cardiff Blues. There were over 500 young girls from all over the region taking part and it was inspiring to see so many young girls involved in sport.
The aim of the day was to target girls who have never played rugby before to try and encourage them to get involved in girl’s rugby and to change the stereotype that ‘rugby is only for boys’. The day was made up of around 15 skill sessions where pupils were exposed to common skills involved in rugby which could be transferred from other sports. Stations included rugby tennis, fitness, hand eye co-ordination drills, obstacle courses and a game of touch rugby.
All the Treorchy pupils that attended were excellent and threw themselves into every skill session with great enthusiasm.
