  • Congratulations to your new Student Governors

    Published 04/12/17

    Following a rigorous application and selection process, I am pleased to announce that we have two new student governors who will be in post for 12 months starting January 2018.  They are Temi Oladapo and Ali Reyazat.  Both students performed very well in the final interview and were up against a strong field of 6 shortlisted candidates in total.   I am grateful to all those who applied for this important position and look forward to working with Temi and Ali in the coming year.  Thanks to our out-going student governors too, Deborah Perdoni and Ababil Tahir who have done a superb job in the last 12 months.

  • West Side Story

    Published 23/11/17

     

    A massive Congratulations to Abigail Gorton and all the staff and students in last evenings performance of West Side Story – it was utterly brilliant in so many ways.  Particular congratulations to Conor Fleming for directing this mammoth and challenging musical.

    The acting, singing, musicians, choreography, staging, lighting, sound and costumes were all utterly brilliant and all done in the beautiful yet very challenging space of the College Chapel.  A parent emailed me last night to say:

    "I just want to thank the St Dom's students and staff for a wonderful evening!  I came to 'West Side Story' because James was playing his flute in the band,  and the whole experience was lovely.  As I walked in through the gates, a girl walked towards me and asked if I had come for the musical. She then invited me to wait in the dining-room and was very pleasant.   One of the ticket / programme ushers was very understanding when I explained that I had paid on parentpay but had misplaced my ticket and took me to my seat in the Chapel.

    Then the musical!   I thought that the dance and fight choreography was utterly brilliant.  The Puerto Rican girls' accents were great.  Lauren's voice as Maria was stunning and I loved the character Anita too.  It was wonderful to hear the support the cast and band received from their fellow students in the audience,  and it was so lovely to see the buzz they got from performing the show together.  James has appreciated the way Abi is with the musicians, and she and they came up trumps!  

    I was looking forward to coming to my first St Dom's show, and I have come home very happy.  However, if there are any reports of a strange woman walking down Roxeth Hill whistling 'America' - it was me - I cannot get that tune our of my head!"

    A lovely tribute which captures the whole performance perfectly.

    A proud and wonderful moment for our College and a great performance that everyone involved can feel rightly proud of!

    A few photographs of the evening can be viewed here.
