I would like to revisit Shakespeare again this week. It is hard to watch the work and dedication that has taken place during this week’s Festival and not celebrate it further. This week I have spent a significant part of the week watching rehearsals and final performances. There are many aspects to comment on. The obvious growth that has taken place in so many students not only from year to year, but from the beginning of this year’s rehearsals till the final production. The growth in ability to focus and to draw on inner resources. The dedication of each child to what they were doing was outstanding and the willingness to adapt and follow direction was notable across all year levels, particularly our third class students who were performing at Glen St for the first time.
