STUDENTS at a secondary school put on a spectacular show to raise cash for a good cause.

Performing arts, dance and drama students from Bridgemary School, in Wych Lane, Gosport, performed the show on Tuesday to raise funds for the Faith & Football charity.

Around 150 parents and supporters watched the show, which for some of the students was the culmination of more than six months’ hard work.

The show ranged from contemporary and street dance to improvisation and physical theatre including a moving scene inspired by the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Students from all years took part and the show was put together by a group of four Year 9 students to raise funds for Faith & Football, which uses football to teach life skills and provide role models for young people.

The evening raised more than £250 from ticket sales and refreshments.

Gemma Sinclair, head of drama, said: ‘It was absolutely fantastic. We have had some great feedback too.

‘The show was extremely professional and it is amazing how much talent the students have when they perform. The students sang some amazing songs, both from the theatre and pop, and the dances had fantastic choreography too.’

Celia Hayward, head of dance, said: ‘The high standard of performance from all involved was truly outstanding and everyone’s hard work and commitment culminated in a fantastic show.’
