Treetops held its annual Performing Arts Night on Friday 9th September. With each new year, this event never ceases to impress. This year, Treetops re-introduced Secondary Dance, and for the first time, had Primary and Secondary Drama items. Jamie from ‘Schools Go Dance’ once again partnered with Treetops to create these items. The evening also show-cased the amazing talent of our students who participate in the school’s peripatetic and school-based music programmes.
One of the great many highlights of this event is seeing students who are otherwise quite shy or reserved, transform into someone else on stage. This was especially the case for our Secondary School items.
Having a parent item again was a delight. This is a very ‘Treetops’ thing to do that is not evident in many schools. The value to our students in seeing their parents, along with other adults, clearly enjoying performing is immeasurable. Treetops has a great depth of creative talent in our parent body, and their rendition of ‘I’ll Be There for You’ by The Rembrandts was excellent.
This year the school sold a record number of tickets for our Performing Arts Night. It is really encouraging to see the strength of our Performing Arts Programme, and we can all look forward to seeing how it continues to thrive in the years to come.
