The auditions for ‘Return to the Forbidden Planet’ took place on Saturday 27th April 2019 and we were delighted by the pupils’ obvious talent, creativity and enthusiasm.  A fantastic group of pupils, with many wonderful actors and singers amongst them.  After much thought and discussion between the music and drama departments, the play has now been cast and rehearsals are underway.  I have every confidence there is a lot of fun to come throughout the term for everyone and they will do themselves proud on 27th and 28th June 2019.

Hastings Young Art Project 2019 in aid of Cancer Research

During the Easter break the prize giving ceremony for the Hastings Young Art Project 2019 took place at the Hastings Museum.  There were a good number of local schools represented at the exhibition and it was lovely to see the high quality of work on display.  Vinehall art students were well represented, with their diverse skills ranging from models of the Earth to paintings on tiles.

We are very pleased to announce that our pupils achieved a number of awards including the top prize of first place for Isabelle S for her piece entitled ‘Travel and Adventure’.  Delilah and Lorcan G each achieved second place.  Isabel DLL and Miranda R achieved joint third place.  Ellie T, Willow A and Margot F were shortlisted, all receiving acknowledgement of their achievements.  Milo M was recognised by the judging panel for his graphic design skills.

Most importantly, to all those who took part in the competition, I would like to say a big thank you.  Just by entering, you have made a real difference.
