May Pole performance 2021


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.

The dances included ‘Black Magic’;  ‘Nine to Five’; ‘Shut up and dance with me’, and ‘Its raining men’.

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!
