Two CLC girls win first prizes at Performing Arts Festival

The Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts was first held, under a different name, in 1926. The hope was then expressed “that in time it would become one of the greatest musical events in this part of England”. 

The Festival provides candidates with an opportunity to perform and showcase their work outside College and to a wider audience. This enables the girls to develop their performance skills in a more public and challenging arena.

Rosie (UC4) was awarded first prize and a £10 book token in the class, ‘Prose Reading from My Favourite Book’.

Rosie had to, from memory, deliver an introduction and recommendation followed by a reading from her chosen book; The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Valentina (UC4) was awarded first prize and the cup for Public Speaking.

Valentina constructed and delivered a powerful speech of nearly five minutes on 'The One Child Policy in China’. She eloquently delivered her speech, which detailed the history and long term effects of this policy.

Congratulations to both the girls on their successes at the festival.
