Students at Coloma Convent Girls School have brought the Shirley Hills in Croydon alive with their rendition of the much-loved musical The Sound of Music.
More than 300 girls took part in the three-night run, performed in the school’s brand-new Winton House Performing Arts Centre. The standard of performance was outstanding with particular credit going to members of the choir, those who took leading parts and the wonderful staff who inspired and directed them.
Maureen Martin, headteacher, said: “The sight of so many young ‘Sisters’ around the school’s grounds brought back many happy memories to our own Daughters of Mary and Joseph Sisters who had helped so much in making this Performing Arts Centre a reality. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our generous donors and sponsors for their support and say a big ‘well done’ to the girls, who worked so incredibly hard to pull off such a fabulous performance.”
