Townshend International School Play – Blood Brothers

Posted by Robert Setchell in 2018

Townshend International School Play - Blood Brothers

On Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd  February the Townshend Drama group performed the play Blood Brothers by Willy Russell.

Under the expert tutelage of director Miss Nelson, the students performed the tragic story of 2 brothers separated at birth. Various musical pieces were performed as part of the play and the actors showed the variety of emotions conveyed in the play, from comedic scenes to that of immense sadness.

The play was performed in a magically transformed seminar room, transformed into the stages required of a front of a council estate house and a living room for an upper middle class family.  They were also well supported by stage technicians under the guidance of Mr Sabri.

The students performed in front of an enraptured audience who gave the actors many standing ovations as they truly deserved.

Nurnberg 2018 excursion for history students

Nurnberg 2018 excursion for history students

On the 26th January 2018 students of grade 9, IGCSE and A Level History went on an excursion to Nurnberg, This was to support their understanding of Germany 1918-1945.

 

Many of these students had been on our other excursions on this topic, the Eagles nest, Auschwitz, and from this academic year- Berlin. As we are in a central location in Europe, we have been able to go to excellent exhibits about this period in a way hands on and visual to our students. In this case the museum is held in the Congress hall of the Nazi party Rally grounds- and it gave students the sense of not just the horror but the scale of propaganda used by the Nazis to control the German people. The museum is done with exhibits an audio guide , so students could learn at their own pace and in their own languages if needs be.

The students were well behaved throughout and excellent ambassadors for Townshend in public. They were respectable in the museum with the solemnity of the topic studied. They were rewarded with this with free time in the medieval centre of Nurnberg, able to enjoy the German cuisine and shops,

Halloween Party 2017

On the spooky evening of November 4th, Townshend was transformed for the annual Halloween Party with scary displays and decorations and the \’fright walk\’ to the dining hall with seniors leaping and screaming as people climbed to the dining hall.

Ran by the seniors who devised music, refreshments and entertainment, the students came in all manner of costumes and make up. Special mention must go to the \’best outfit\’ which went to Anis \’Two-Face\’ Serikbayev. Good fun was had by all, and it was a nice start to the term.
