25th February 2020 — The show relayed a powerful message about ecological and environmental issues and the importance of taking care of the planet.

Head of Drama, Mrs McDowell explained, “Eddie the penguin discovers that the world he lives in is changing and that the ice is melting. He decides to take his family to find a new home at the North Pole, where he meets Peggy the polar bear and discovers that human beings are causing the ice to melt. Eddie goes on a mission to save the planet and let the world know how they can change things for the better.

Dressed as penguins, polar bears and an assortment of humans, the pupils delivered their lines, actions and songs with great confidence! They all had great fun collecting various decorative props from around the world.”

“It reminded me of Happy Feet!” said one delighted audience member. “The children were obviously having so much fun whilst tackling this very serious topic.”

The performance helped to reinforce the school’s theme for the week which was Consumerism and joyfully reminded the audience to attempt simple changes to save energy and to make extra effort to recycle more.
