The Bridge (Year 7)

A Year in The Bridge ​

Part of school life at The Bridge is participation in a wide range of experiences to develop our pupils both academically and socially. Activities include extending academic interests, sports, performing arts, community projects and the media, preserving the environment and student leadership. Students participate in the annual ‘Bridge Performance’. Past performances include ‘Grease’ In 2014, ‘Wizard of Oz’ in 2015, ‘Annie’ in 2016, ‘Aladdin’ in 2017, 'Bugsy Malone' in 2018, 'Beauty and the Beast' in 2019 and 'Matilda' in 2022.

Outstanding performances from Year 7 students, who took to the stage in The Bridge production of MATILDA Jr.

The talent displayed was incredible. The students worked so hard and were a joy to teach. They were professional, disciplined, committed and above all, kind! The cast were simply AMAZING! 
The school theatre was at full capacity; a wonderful audience comprising of staff, families, friends, students and community members, all which conjured up a fantastic atmosphere for the first time since the pandemic began.

Thanks to all who came to watch. I am extremely proud of all the cast! Well done.      Miss Walsh, Leader of Performing Arts 

Hello, my name is Izzy, and I was picked to be the lead role, Matilda. This experience has made unbreakable friendships and I have grown a lot in confidence as a person. I have really enjoyed this experience and have improved on my acting, singing and dancing skills. This will take me further on in life and one day, I might even become a famous actor.

This whole show experience has changed my life. It has made me realise what I want to do in my future. I always thought that I would never have the confidence to stand up in front of a crowd and perform, but thanks to all the support around me I was able to do this. 
A special thanks to Miss Karolina, Miss Danni and especially to Miss Kelly.
