WARWICK School’s inaugural Discovery Festival has been hailed a success.
Every boy had the opportunity to experience workshops and activities during the festival which included creating a willow sea monster called the kraken.
The Junior School had a ‘Big Draw’ in their playground, producing self-portraits, mask making, taking part in drumming workshops, and instrument making.
The Senior School pupils – with residencies from Birmingham Conservatoire, dance company Motionhouse and Two Circles Design – learnt how to create music using sounds, html coding and voice, discovered dancing, and willow sculpture.
There were drama performances from Warwick School boys including Lock Down and The Epic of Gilgamesh.
Music was performed by the Foundation Symphony Orchestra, The Wind Band, and Jazz Band, while Motionhouse performed ‘Underground’, a work about having personal space invaded in an underground carriage.
School drama director Mike Perry said: “The arts team can all be very proud of the discoveries that were made by the Warwick School community.
“The months of planning paid off brilliantly and the challenges ignited powerful new skills and passions in many of the boys.”
