Senior school students have been hard at work rehearsing for the upcoming musical, Heathers. The production is a dark comedy that deals with matters affecting teens including bullying, suicide, manipulative relationships, and mental health issues. A student favourite, parts of the show have been revised to best suit a school environment.
Wednesday mornings always begin with an assembly of the junior students, where important information is shared, and quite often there will be an event of some kind. This can range from a competition, to games, and of course, recitals of music or dance. Three Grade 6 girls, Lily Blois, Laura Oulton, and Mylah Simpkin, collectively thought it would be fun to choreograph their own dance routine and present it three weeks ago.
The 2017 blockbuster movie, The Greatest Showman, garnered much attention for its soundtrack which includes the winning Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, “This Is Me”. Like previous selections from our Musical Revue that have been featured already, this song identifies with personal identities and encourages one to accept who they really are. Fortunately, our KES community fosters this philosophy in simple dignity and respect as an aspect of our Mission Statement, and everybody is comfortable with that.
