31 July 2015

Children from Bolton School Nursery's Butterfly Room and the Nursery Class for Three and Four Year Olds put on a concert entirely in French to show off all they have learned over the past year! The children introduced themselves and sang a variety of songs with different vocabulary, including colours, sizes, and numbers.

Girls' Division pupils in year 7 to 11 also impressed audiences with their performance of Arabian Nights at the end of term. This fantastic production brought the stories of 'One Thousand and One Nights' to life in the Girls' Division Theatre, and transported the audience into fantastical lands with magic birds, hidden caverns, and shouting stones!

The Junior Girls also put on a show with their Summer Concert, Tales of Hesketh House. This was a fantastic celebration of the School's centenary and even included a new piece composed by two pupils titled 'Thank You Lord Leverhulme'. There was plenty of comedy as the girls reminded their parents and families of their own schooldays with musical performances, drama, poetry recitals, and dance.
