College Update – 1.7.22

Lumenus Update:

Hello everyone! This week’s Lumenus blog is going to be all about our Oldham Coliseum Inter-School Festival that took place on Monday 27th June 2022 at The Oldham Coliseum! The theme this year was homecoming.

Where to start… Lumenus were given a script called ‘Common’ by Peegan Murray. The script was a great stimulus and was adapted by Lumenus. Lumenus students have been rehearsing for the show and have worked extremely hard in rehearsals leading up to the show.

On the 27th of June (Show Day) all the Lumenus students came to College and from College we all set off to the Oldham Coliseum at 10am. Once we got to the Coliseum, we had a welcome meeting where we got to see the other schools taking part. After the welcome meeting, the students rehearsed their lines. After lunch, students got into their costumes and completed a technical rehearsal, and a professional photographer took pictures of the students which we will receive and share very soon!

At 7pm, guests started to arrive and students were feeling excited and nervous! 7:30 was show time! New Bridge College performed in the second half of the show, which meant that we were able to watch the first 2 schools perform. Both schools did well and set the bar high for the night. After the interval Lumenus were backstage, getting ready to go on stage! Finally, it was show time! Staff were backstage ready with props! I do not know who was more nervous, staff or students!

The students performed to their best ability and rose to the occasion. Lumenus had the whole audience laughing and the crowd loved them!

We also had a couple of special guests in the audience! Mr Mckeown, Mr Lyons and Mr Thornton came to watch us. It was lovely to see some familiar faces. Overall, it was a fantastic performance and a wonderful evening. Thank you and well done to all the students for all their hard work.

I will leave you with some quotes from the night.

“Best show of the night… the students stole the entire show.” – Mr Mckeown

“We could not believe the progress ALL the students have made this year in their confidence and ability to be able to perform such an amazing show.” – Katherine Loftus

“I am so proud of them all, a fantastic way to finish the year.” – Mrs Preston

“Emphatic performances.” – Mr Thornton

“Congratulate the students on my behalf.” – Mayoress of Oldham

English Update:

Examination season has well and truly been upon us in English the last couple of weeks. I am so pleased to announce that our students who were entered for their Entry Level exams have all passed their speaking and listening, reading and writing (subject to moderation). This is a fantastic achievement for our students and the college and one of which we are all extremely proud! Our Level 1 and 2 students will be sitting their reading and writing exams next week. They have received lots of revision material to help them prepare for this in addition to the hard work they have put it in during lesson time.

Good luck to all students sitting exams next week; we are nearly there!
