As part of BATH”s Brazilliant ‘17 project, students in Years 10-13 are on their way to Brazil to work with members of BANHO, the Brazilian cohort of BATH, on a variety of Drama and Dance related projects.
BATH performers have received an exceptional response to their recent Dance Show, entitled 'Proximo Passo' (The Next Step) with over 300 visitors attending the one-night-only evening show at King James.
One of our many talented BATH members, Daveylee D. in Year 8, has received the specialist Primary Liaison Award at Prize Evening for his excellent work with St. Andrews Primary School.
Rehearsals are well underway and tickets are on sale for the much-anticipated BATH Christmas Show, 'Para Whanau Reunion and the Saving of Ruby Mountain'.
For the second time we are fortunate enough to have an international exchange student staying with us for an extensive period of time. This initiative gives all of our students the opportunity to learn about other cultures and global citizenship, which is especially beneficial for those unable to travel.
A number of our Drama students in Years 8 and 9 were recently surprised with a scenic trip to Scotland as part of their rehearsal progression for BATH’s (Bishop Auckland Theatre Hooligans) forthcoming play, ‘The Secret’.
As part of BATH’s international youth project, ‘Brazilliant’, we have recently welcomed our first group of Brazilian exchange visitors to King James. Eight young people and two leaders joined us in school to share their vibrant culture and infectious positivity.
To help support our Brazilian visitors, three form groups in Years 7 and 8 raised an amazing £700 by completing an on-site sponsored walk.
Having recently returned from the second educational visit to Brazil, our students are now eagerly awaiting the arrival of eight young Brazilians who will be joining our community for two weeks in July.
During the Easter holidays, 12 leaders and members of BATH (Bishop Auckland Theatre Hooligans) at King James will be travelling to Brazil to take part in the second Brazil Exchange visit.
