AN ODE TO HELEN O’GRADY
General News
Jude writes "

AN ODE TO HELEN O’GRADY


“I started at Helen O’Grady
When I was a youthful Year 9,
Little did I know
That I’d have such an awesome time

I remember the first time
We played “Survival Word Tennis”,
The fierce competition
Is something that I’ll miss.
Many costumes I have worn
Throughout my months spent here,
From disastrously scary,
To some just downright queer.


The production in 2008
Was about film stars and scandals,
I worked with their excitable fans,
And made banners with wobbly handles.
The summer production last July
Was the definition of a “laugh”,
A Greek tragedy by teenagers,
I was the stressed-out member of staff
We’ve done many wacky warm-ups
At the start of our weekly dramas,
From chewing hums and chanting,
To impersonating llamas.


When the outside world was crazy
And school was such a ‘mare,
I’d know that on a  Monday
My friends at Drama would be there.
From Rachel’s insane outfits
To Navina’s rise to fame,
Life after Helen O’Grady
Will not be quite the same!”

Rehearsals So far
Classes
Jude writes "

It is such a joy and delight to see my students working so hard and creatively during rehearsals.  

Tonight I visited the Crayford studio and was blown away by the energy, comittment and professionalism of the class.  Already there are some very intelligent characters being created by class members.  Most of the students have learnt all  of their lines and attend class fully prepared to work and have fun.  What is most noticable, with the Crayford class, is how they all work together as a team and it is clear that they have tremendous respect for each other and are totally supportive when working as a team.  

Well done Crayford and Well done Flair, my talented class teacher, who constantly demonstrates a professional, kind and intellectual quality to her teaching methods.

Judy Adams, Principal.

Classes
Flair writes "

I love Tuesdays because it's the day I teach drama to the Crayford Class.  They are so friendly and amazing!  We would like to welcome Bethany, Chloe's Sister.  She was excellent and really joined in with the improvisations.
