The Retold Ramayana with Daljit Nagra
As part of the Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival, 39 of our Year 11 pupils were lucky enough to be invited to St. Peter’s School, Exeter, to watch Daljit Nagra’s presentation and reinterpretation of the ‘Ramayana’ – one of the greatest of all Hindu epics.
Nagra’s one-man performance brought to life the story of Rama’s quest to rescue his wife Sita from her abduction by Raavana, Lord of the Underworld.
After an apprehensive start, the pupils (from ours and four other secondary schools) were quickly sucked into the modern take on an ancient myth. With wild monkey battles, tender love scenes, brilliant animations and even audience participation, Nagra enchanted us all with his engaging, sometimes humorous, telling of a classic tale which has been known and re-told across the Eastern world for thousands of years.
Love. Sacrifice. Demons. Monkeys. What more could you ask for?
‘Ramayana’:one of the greatest of all Hindu epics
Steve Barlow is tall and hairy, Steve Skidmore isn’t! Together they are Britain’s most popular comedy writing and performing double act for young people. “The 2 Steves” visited the College on October 1 2014. They wowed a packed hall of Year 7 students followed by another performance to Year 6 students visiting from local primary schools.
All of the students were totally engaged by the crazy presentation techniques of the authors. Many students joined them on stage for interactive readings from their books which also involved the audience getting in on the action.
The two authors also worked in the library talking with students and signing books: as it was Open Evening they had lots of visitors in the evening session.
“The 2 Steves” met over twenty years ago when they were both teaching in Nottingham. Since then they have written over 150 books together. In addition to their many popular fiction series like Action Dogs, Challenger, iHero, iHorror, Mad Myths, Vernon Bright and The Dark Forest, they have written many non fiction books, TV scripts and edited many plays. They also write extensively for the reluctant reader
During activities week 100 year 11 students took part in an enterprise activity where they had to work as a team in developing a housing estate for a new generation of Exmouth residents. Students had to work on finance, design, advertising, and communications and finally pitch their ideas to a group of local business people. From that day, a winning team was chosen who took part in the regional final at Dartington Hall this September.
At Dartington the students had to present their ideas in front of 120 local business people and also four other schools. The students delivered their pitch with confidence and enthusiasm and were congratulated for their profits and also for being the only team with a male participant. The students had a fantastic day and their excellent work will continue as they now hope to run the project out into local primary schools.
What excellent ambassadors for the College! The students involved were Chloe Hamon, Sydney Blackburn, Emma Hope and Nikitta Wood.
