There are some amazing things going on at McGlashan. Outstanding performances on the sports fields and in the classrooms.
Plan A is to highlight some top stories in this newsletter but also direct you to www.mcglashan.school.nz/college-life/news
This newsletter's School story: Year 13 students Ben Porter, Stewart Ashton, and Ezekiel Nielsen entered in the 5-minute Student Directed division of the SGCNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival Otago Regional Final at the end of the last term. Ben and Stewart co-directed a scene from Romeo & Juliet and went 'outside the box' this year. Ben played the role of the Nurse, and Stewart as Juliet (in full costume and make-up), with Ezekiel supporting in the scene as the character of Peter. They most deservedly won the Best 5-minute Scene and were selected to represent our college and region at the national final in Wellington where they won 2 awards:
· "The Two Actors Who Showed The Strongest and Most Truthful Connection Between Them Award "- donated by Toi Whakaari National Drama School (Ben Porter and Stewart Ashton
· "Most Innovative Interpretation (Student Directed) Award "- donated by New Zealand Theatre Federation (Ben Porter and Stewart Ashton)
· Ben Porter was selected for the NSSP - National Shakespeare Schools Production
