Sasha was asked to perform at the Suffolk Festival of Performing Arts Gala concert last Sunday, held at Ipswich School. She was asked to perform her poem (The Magic Box by Kit Wright) and her prose reading (extract from Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl) in front of a huge audience and was the only Abbey pupil there so it really was quite daunting and she did a fabulous job! She followed the Woodbridge Senior School choir who were Suffolk under 20s Choir Champions.
Sasha was presented with her cup for the Suffolk Festival Junior Speech Champion and prize of £60!, a cup for the highest mark in Junior Verse Speaking and also a prize for the Duologue Verse speaking, which she won with Lily. Sasha won five classes with distinction (Verse speaking, Prose speaking, Prose reading, Solo acting and Duologue Verse) which we think was quite amazing. She worked very hard and really enjoyed it!
