This was followed by the drama students giving a performance of “the Boy Preference” which had received outstanding reviews from the press.

Over the three days hundreds of visitors packed in to the new studios to see all the student work on display. Students in the new Photography studio demonstrated how the dark room was being used to create some stunning photography work. In the new Graphics area there was some brilliant design work showing how creative students can be using different materials. This year the show had expanded to include Media work which showcased a number of different films, including animated films made by the students.
