The last of three performances for parents was held last night with the Hartlepool school’s proud headteacher, Mark Atkinson, saying every show was very well received.

“The parents were saying it’s the best we’ve ever done,” beamed Mr Atkinson.

The drama club at the Hartlepool school put on a different musical performance at this time every year and the pupils have been hard at work rehearsing in their own time to ensure the show ran as smoothly as possible.

The children also enjoyed a trip to Sunderland Empire to watch a Joseph show and get some inspiration.

Mr Atkinson added: “Credit to all of the pupils because they have been rehearsing hard out of school time on evenings and at weekends so they haven’t missed any time in the classroom.

“We have been practicing since the Autumn term and the hard work all paid off because the shows were fantastic.”

Mr Atkinson praised pupils Jessica Mahoney, Sarah Feroz and Jessica Evans who each had one show as Joseph.

He added: “Our Josephs were brilliant as were all of the youngsters who took part.

“To have 54 playing their part is fantastic, well done to them all.”
