BUDDING performers impressed exam chiefs with an all-singing and dancing stage show.
Year 10 pupils from Dene Community School of Technology, in Peterlee, put on a huge variety show based on the theme of reflections.
It was part of a showcase for their GCSE in performing arts and won high praise from moderators.
A school spokesman said: “The moderator was very impressed and said that he was pleased with the group’s efforts.
“The standards were very high.”
The performance featured multi-cultural dance ensembles and the performers wore a variety of costumes to help bring the show to life.
Student Chloe Cordner said: “I really enjoy being part of the school performances as we take on the responsibility for all the production aspects ourselves, from lights and sound to publicity and stage management.
“It’s a lot of hard work, but we find it very rewarding.”
