Our school’s Annual Walk-a-thon will be held on Friday, October 27, 2017. Sponsor sheets were sent home today.

I look forward to your support.
A Midsummer Night's Dream
The production started with the cast auditions before the Christmas break and Miss Tovey and Mr Waterhouse were very impressed with the level of talent displayed. The cast was fixed and rehearsals began in the New Year. 2017 brought new challenges to the cast, with many extra access classes and the cast having many other extra-curricular commitments, rehearsals with a full attendance were indeed, rare! However, the cast (and crew) worked tirelessly to ensure they had learnt their lines and the everyone knew their roles and positioning. An extra well done and praise needs to go to Miss Tovey for giving so much dedicated times after school and at the weekends to work with the production team to ensure that the play was a success. The entire team did a fantastic job and put on a mesmeric and spectacular show for the Queen's College community which warranted an encore performance for all that had missed out! It is certainly an experience those who participated in it will never forget and one that will give them many life skills moving forward through their careers and their personal pursuits.
Special thanks and consideration need to go to many people, Mrs. Moss and Mrs. Andrews in the High School office who headed up the Box Office, The Administration team for their belief, trust, encouragement, enthusiasm and support for the entire production from inception to completion. Miss Vargas who worked incredibly hard on the tickets, programming and with the crew, Mr Kemp and the maintenance team for their help in the construction of the set and arrangement of the auditorium. Ms Facey and Ms Hobbs for the help in the concession kiosk, Ms Cates for her help in making sure there was always space available for rehearsal and printing of the programmes, Ms Campbell for heading up the make-up team, the ushers and back stage crew, and the largest thanks must go to Miss Tovey for incredible patience, dedication, time and effort to ensure the play was as successful as it was.
The producer, directors, cast, crew and all involved in the production are incredibly proud to have put on the FIRST ever Shakespeare production at Queen's College and hope it is the first of many.
Massive thanks must also go to Mr. Waterhouse; he fulfilled not only his role as the Producer of the production, but also found himself assistant directing, designing, choreographing and up ladders at 10pm on a Friday night constructing the set! His input was essential in making this production the success it was.
