Year 11 Drama students staged a dress rehearsal of 'Bottom of the Bottle' on Friday, 19th June.
The play is inspired by issues teenagers are faced with in our modern society, exploring the themes of family life, addiction and peer pressure.
Each of the pupils contributed to the scriptwriting process and have spent the past few months auditioning for roles, learning their lines, exploring rehearsal techniques and staging the production.
Year 9 pupils Molly Gallagher and Peter Hunter took a camera into the skies above Sportsday to capture the event from angles never seen before. Our DJI Phantom drone was quite a spectacle as it hovered and swooped over the track with its gimbal mounted camera following the action. Thanks to Molly and Peter for the footage and they did really well to master the controls after a brief training session the day before. Pictures can be viewed by clicking here
