For Monday’s Creative Learning Day our sixth form focused on International Women’s Day. Students spent the first two hours learning about the day itself and meeting with Suzy Van Rooyen from The Good Loaf – a local charity that helps women get back on their feet. After that students chose their own subject focus and responded to a brief to create a piece of work around the place of women in our society and IWD2020’s tagline for this year “Each for Equal”. It was a positive and inspiring day and all students gained a lot from the experience.
In the kooky, upside-down world of the Addams Family, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of their dreams. Nonetheless, this quirky family still has to deal with many of the same challenges faced by any other family, and the spookiest nightmare faced by every family creates the focus of the musical: the Addams kids are growing up.
