Around 70 students, aged between 16-21, all with learning disablities and studying on full-time courses at the College, presented a lively evening of dance, theatre, song and arts against a variety of popular classics, including the Kaiser Chiefs 'I predicts a riot', 'Grease lightnin' and 'Singing in the rain'. The show included a range of dance styles such as contemporary, jass, street, dance-drama, slapstick, mime and freestyle.
Amy Barnes, who was previously on one of the Supported Learning courses and now studies the Skills for Employment course, made a guest performance in the show. Amy commented: "I loved taking part in it! I've done the show many times before it's always great fun. The staff are so good at organising everyone and working in teams is great fun."
Supported Learning Manager, Sharon Priest, said: "The students have worked really hard since the rehearsals started back in November. They have been fully involved in all aspects of the show, from Choreography, singing, dancing, improvisation, filming, artwork and catering. All their effort has paid off - their performances have been fantastic and I am so proud of them."
The Eastleigh College Board and Senior Management Team have launched an ambitious strategy for the period 2020-24 that sets out the College’s priorities to see more learners, be more successful, more often.
The College has remained open throughout the Covid-19 pandemic for many learners and as from September 2020 all learners (including those planning to attend at College House) have returned to a full high-quality education programme as per government guidelines.
