Young Americans Tour 2016
On 21st March 2016, 150 Year 7 and 8 students participated in a Performing Arts workshop with the awesome, `Young Americans`.
On 21st March, something `awesome` happened in the Academy - forty-five `Young Americans` visited the school. They were no ordinary `Young Americans` but highly talented Performing Arts students. They worked with some Year 7 & 8 students in the Great Hall, teaching them a dynamic dance routine and truly inspiring them with their energy and passion. The Academy students sat in complete silence as they showed respect to the inspirational Young Americans as they sang a beautiful version of `Morning has broken`.
