Drama studies at Diss High School given a new lease of life
Drama studies at Diss High School have been given a new lease of life following the grand opening of new studios late last month.
Students, staff and parents joined vice chairman of governors Jenny Dennis on Tuesday, February 24, for the ribbon cutting on the newly-refurbished drama suites, funded by an academies maintenance grant for music and drama improvements.
Amy Bishop, head of drama, said: “Before this building project, the school had insufficient provision for drama.
“These new facilities are used and enjoyed by all our pupils and demonstrate our commitment to raising the profile of the arts subjects across the wider school community.
Featuring two rehearsal spaces plus lighting and sound technology for performance evenings, the studios were christened with a special performance devised and rehearsed by the students, of ‘Icarus’, based on the Greek myth.
Performing arts captain, Molly Young said: “These facilities make such a difference to all pupils studying drama. Thank you for investing in us and seeing our potential.”
