Shakespeare Success for Verdon Students

Congratulations to Patrick Collins (left) who at the Southland Regional Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival, was selected as the National Shakespeare Schools Production Direct Entry Selected Student. This entitles Patrick to attend the week long residential course National Shakespeare Schools Production (NSSP). Nationwide 47 students will attend this week and 24 students will be chosen to be members of SGCNZ Young Shakespeare Company to travel to the UK in 2011.

Congratulations to Patrick Wilkes who also entered the SGCNZ Shakespeare Music Composition Competition where students from all over New Zealand compete. Patrick was awarded a Highly Commended for his original composition that was to be inspired by the Shakespearean play Titus Andronicus. Patrick has just completed his ATCL in violin receiving distinction.
