Arts Exhibition 2012

THE spotlight has shone on talented students as they took to the stage in a spectacular showcase of the arts.

Dance and drama, fashion and fine art, photography, food and music were all on display at an end of term exhibition at Trinity Academy.

Around 400 siblings, parents, grandparents and friends packed the main hall to see fashion students take to the catwalk and performances by others studying dance.

Drama students acted out scenes from and there was singing from Trinity Singers.

Principal Ian Brew gave an overview of some of the arts highlights of the year including productions of Lord of the Flies and Big, and the academy being the host of recent events, a Celebration of Dance and Doncaster Rotary Club’s Young Chef of the Year competition.

Although the academy’s specialism is in business and enterprise, it had built a strong reputation for the creative arts, he said.

Music groups currently include a percussion club, jazz club, rock group and band The Mondays, while young artists had benefited from the presence of three artists in residence this year.

Mr Brew added: “Our departments of art, textiles, music, food technology and art work incredibly hard every day so that all our young people benefit from the arts and it shows in the very high standards to which our students are performing.”

Students from across all year groups were recognised for improvement and achievement in an awards presentation in the creative and performing arts, and in food technology.

Following the awards, the audience was invited to view work by older students studying A level fine art, photography and textiles.
