This year the May Pole performance was undertaken on two separate occasions to a maximum audience of 30 people due to the Covid Pandemic restrictions. On Tuesday 6th and Friday 9th July the pupils performed 4 modern dances around the May Pole , songs and 4 very powerful poems about Dementia. These were written by class 2 pupils following work undertaken as part of the Archbishop of York Young Leaders Award. This was a ticket only event for parents and supporters of the school from the community.
One community member quoted: “You could pay good money to see a performance and not experience something as remarkable as this.”
Please read the Dementia Poems below, be warned have a tissue at the ready!
