All pupils in Year 8 studying French headed to the Theatre to watch ‘Mes Chers Voisins’ (My Lovely Neighbours). The play, delivered by Onatti Productions, was performed two native French actors and was entirely in French.

‘Mes Chers Voisins’ told a humorous collection of stories to link five different teenagers who live on the same street. A variety of familiar topics were covered in the course of the performance, including numbers, school subjects, buying cinema tickets, food, likes and dislikes, parts of the body and telling the time.

The production also included lots of student participation, and the Year 8 girls took part with enthusiasm. Carol Habib, Olivia Maguire, Halimah Natha and Frankie Williams-Denton were picked at random to contribute on the stage, and did a superb job.  Other girls contributed by answering questions in French.

Girls’ Division Head of French Mr Fico said, “There was a real buzz in the theatre. It was wonderful to see the girls react and interact with the actors so well.

“The actors asked me to thank the girls. They said that they had toured for six months in schools across the UK and this was the best audience they have had since day one. They were so impressed by the girls.”
