Going beyond our best

Students shine at Skoolfest 19

Skoolfest 19, a performance event held at The Pavilion in Worthing and hosted by Northbrook Met took place last night 915th May) and DHS were delighted to be a part of it.  The night sees an array of talent from students from across Sussex perform, and we were proud to be a part of it. The contribution from Durrington High students was amazing and in our opinion the highlight of the show!

Ellie Powys-Keck performed her brilliant self-penned song You and I and was accompanied by Spencer Owen.  Our vocal group made up of Dan Bone, Ellie Powys-Keck, Mary Mothersole, Tia Poole, Millie Whiteside, Ruby Childe, Ava Hodgson, Ellie Lossing -Smith and Spencer Owen sang a beautiful version of Bring Him Home from Les Misérables. The Crave (formally Masterplan), a four-piece band featuring Spencer Owen and Ethan Cunliffe from Durrington High, sang their original composition You Could Say I’m Mad.

The whole night was spectacular and the talent of the DHS students shone brightly. You can watch highlights of the three DHS performances here:

Many thanks to the performing arts department who work so hard to nurture the talent of our students and give them opportunities to perform. Special thanks to Mr Dean and Mrs Isham for taking them to Skoolfest.
