School musical

The school, along with the Parents’ Committee, are exploring the idea of organising a school musical at the end of the 2019. This will be undertaken by every year group and preparation will be done after school. In the next week or so TYs will survey whether or not there is sufficient interest by students to run the musical. Students can help out in different ways, whether it’s performing or in various backstage roles. It’s a wonderful opportunity to showcase the great talent at SJCC and we hope students express an interest.
