Well done to P6/7L who won 1st prize in the Primary School section of the Rencontres Théâtrales, organised by the Institut français d’Ecosse.
The children wrote and performed their own script entitled “Astérix et Obélix et la potion magique”.
The “Rencontres théâtrales” provide also an opportunity for pupils to meet each other, show their skills in creating a play, imaging props and scenery, learning a text by heart, performing it for an audience and at least practice French in a stimulating atmosphere. It requires various talents: taking control of one’s voice and actions; and numerous skills in visual arts, music and dance.The judges were very impressed by the high quality of the performances and the enthusiasm of pupils playing on stage in French. Teachers agreed that the “Rencontres théâtrales “give the pupils such a wonderful experience. They absolutely loved it and were so proud of themselves”.
