Roald Dahl’s 100th Birthday Celebrations

Last week the Years 5 and 6 boys had the opportunity to take part in a range of activities organised to celebrate 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl. With Roald being a favourite of our boys, it was timely to have the boys share their love of his books and have some fun.


A highlight of the week was the outstanding play reading by Year 11 Drama students of The Twits. Led by drama teachers Ms Tanya Neilsen and Mr Ben Newth, the performers had the audience in hysterics as they shared some of the terrible pranks this unlikely couple played on each other. “Awesome” was the word used by the younger students at the conclusion of the play.
There was also a special session set aside for Roald Dahl Readers to share their favourite moments from the books. To accompany this was the BFG’s special frobscottle drink recreated by library staff which proved to be a delight for the tastebuds.
Other activities ranged from a trivia quiz to a games day to a viewing of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory which has continued into this week.
