PORG International School Theatre Visit

On 5th December our students from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 went to see a play performed by students of a performing arts gymnazium from Brno. The theatre venue was at the K-TRIO Cultural Centre in the south of Ostrava, a short tram ride from our school.

The play was called 'Peculiar Children', based on the fantasy novel 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children', by the American author Ransom Riggs.

The performance was in English and proved to be a great success. Afterwards, our children had a chance to talk to the actors, take pictures with them and see how the stage and props were organised.

Performance art is a wonderful way of developing self-expression and some of the children in our school are not bad actors as well, so we hope this will not be our last chance to see a play performed in English.

The city of Ostrava is becoming more and more known as a centre of arts and performance since the decline of the steel industry. The furnaces and mines may be closed but the creativity lives on and the innovation it brings makes the city a great place to study and be inspired!
