Islander Returns To Help Pupils’ Show

bugsy malone 2015A talented singer songwriter from Scilly has been helping Five Islands School pupils to stage a musical.

Jaime Lock was offered a job with Cornwall Theatre School and since 2011, they’ve made four trips to the islands for holiday drama sessions, during which the students learned how to put on a production.

Stephanie Johnson from CTS offered Jaime a part-time teaching role at Truro School when she moved to the mainland for her A-levels.

Stephanie’s team adapted Bugsy Malone and over four days, the children rehearsed for the ‘Back to Bugsy’ show, which features many elements of the classic musical movie without the messy custard pies!

The Council arranged for CTS to visit. Aisling Hick, who oversees Children’s Services, says they want to continue to provide more memorable opportunities for children and young people.
