The Performing Arts Department proudly presented Sparkleshark on Wednesday 29th January and Thursday 30th January. The play tells the story of Jake and his struggle to confront the school bullies. Luckily for Jake he has his creative stories to help save him. Jake uses his stories to turn the bullies into his friends. Due to the popularity of the play amongst students wishing to take part we had two casts and every one of them should be proud of their performances. It was pleasing to see regular performers and also a number of exceptional debuts made during this show.
