Guernsey here we come!

Life is very busy at Sark School at the moment as we all get ready for our trip to the Guernsey Eisteddfod. This year we are entering the Music Eisteddfod for the first time and the pupils of Class 3 head over to Guernsey next week to perform on the Beau Sejour Stage. They have been busy creating music to entertain their audience and developing new skills along the way. At the start of March the whole school including our preschool pupils will be heading to Beau Sejour to take part in the Speech and Drama Eisteddfod as well as perform our entry in the Guernsey French Section. Class 2 have been busy rehearsing a play in Serquaise, our island language. The whole school are involved in a piece they have devised themselves.

Theatre and performance are so important in child development and grow so many skills that are vital for life. We, at Sark School, value its importance and the development of the Arts are central to our school ethos. As Andrew Lloyd Webber said, “Drama education teaches students how to communicate, how to listen and how to be empathetic.” The pupils grow in confidence and show great creativity throughout the learning journey. They have to think outside the box and find creative solutions. All of these skills are high priorities when being employed in any field. After all, our job as educators is to prepare the workforce of the future.

Looking around our school at the moment I think the future is in safe hands. Wish us all good luck as we board the Sark Ferry to our bigger sister island to perform our new and innovative pieces on the big stage.
