Sccessful European dance and music tour
Performing arts students took part in a European music and dance tour between Friday 6th and Tuesday 10th July where they showcased their talents in Germany and the Netherlands.
Having left the UK on Friday, the students performed their first concert on Saturday morning at The Drielanden Labyrinth in Drielandenpunt, Netherlands, which is Europe's largest outdoor shrub maze and marks where the countries of Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands all meet. They then travelled to Germany where they performed for the second time in the medieval town of Monschau in the afternoon.
After returning to the Netherlands, the students enjoyed a trip to Maastricht's Blegny-Mine in the morning of Sunday 8th July, where they learnt about the fascinating lives of miners and were able to see first-hand the tough conditions endured by the workers. Students then performed their final concert in the city's centre.
As a celebration of their three successful performances, the students spent the final day of their tour at Phantasialand, a theme-park in Bruhl, Germany, before arriving home on Tuesday 10th July.
Mark Pollard, Headteacher, commented, "A huge well done to all students and staff who were part of the successful European dance and music tour. They all worked extremely hard on performances and were fantastic representatives of Bishop Perowne and Worcester.
"The tour enabled students to gain a real insight into the life of a touring musician or dancer and they returned with renewed vigour, which they will take into their performing arts studies at the start of the next school year."
