GREATHAM Primary School pupils put on a swashbuckling show with a twist, performing a three-day run for parents and the rest of the school.

The drama club performed Pirates of the Currybean during and after school, from May 22-24, with 38 children aged seven to 11 taking to the stage.

“The children loved performing, and it was evident in their acting, singing and enthusiasm,” said learning support assistant Sarah-Jayne Ayo.

“It was a show for all. Humour was delivered with spot-on timing, beautiful singing (both solo and ensemble numbers) and great acting.

“We are incredibly proud of them all. Thanks go to the staff and parents who helped out behind the scenes and to the Friends of Greatham School who served refreshments. The drama club runs solely on donations and an amazing £500 was raised over the two main performances.”

Ms Ayo runs the club with teacher Sam Kestle and learning support assistant Julie Sweetman.
