The Year 11 Political Theatre evening showcased drama students work based on last term's unit of work. This unit was inspired by the work of Brecht and Boal, two unique theorists who used the world's events as their performance stimuli. As current news is disturbing and often shocking, this unit gave students the opportunity to explore these issues in a safe, yet creative, environment. Using the knowledge gained from exploring the two theorists, students worked collaboratively to create their own political theatre performances, each with its own statement about different topics which are relevant today.

The audience enjoyed the challenging approach to the exploration of issues such as the refugee crisis, gender inequalities, the South China Sea dispute and Trump's America, amongst other topics. Each group bravely communicated their piece, and by doing so, also expressed their thoughts and views. The evening demonstrated the importance of theatre's role in helping young people express the complexities of the world they are growing up in, and both audience and performers alike shared that learning experience through this special night.

A huge well done to the bravery that our Year 11's showed, and for all their hard work.

It was a little while ago now, but in February Tasen visited our school. It was a unique opportunity for our students to consider their use of Internet and how they can use the Internet in a safe and positive way. We have been very lucky to hear about a boyband who highlight these issues as part of their act. We were able to organize three separate concerts for our Y5 to Y9 students on Tuesday of this week. The students were very positive about the experience and many highlighted it was useful to hear real life stories from real people and to have fun at the same time! The following report is from Frederieke Kersemakers, one of our junior journalists, who witnessed one of the concerts.

"On the 7th of March, a well known boy band from Dublin, Ireland named "Taken" came to talk to us about the problem of Internet Safety and cyberbullying.

The audience went wild as the boys also blew the roof off with their mind blowing music. The three 21 year old Irish boys, named Stephen Barron, Eoghan Mac Mahon and Richie Power have visited many schools over the past year and shared their story about bullying. Their rock band trio formed in September in 2014 and they met in Dublin, Ireland. They have come far with their band visiting schools all around the world sharing their message. We were also able to interview two of the boys for more information, Stephen Barron was in the hospital and we were unable to interview him. He was also unable to to perform with his band.

They had started doing their performances a year ago, and they were discovered while performing in the UK, by someone who organizes school presentations. They have now visited over 200 schools sharing their message. These presentations have prepared the band well by knowing what they should do, how to cope with bullying and how to help someone in these situations. "It is easier to deal with this sort of stuff, and I now know what to say to people to help them too." This has allowed them to be able to speak up for themselves and others."

Dr Watts and Mr Bell, IT Coordinators at ISH would like to thanks everyone who helped to organize the day and especially the students who behaved perfectly and looked liked they were having a great time. The boys from Taken were very impressed by the knowledge and behavior of the students. So, a big, Well Done!
