The Bower Park students in New York


Performing arts students got a taste of the Big Apple last week.

Youngsters from Bower Park Academy, Havering Road, Romford, spent five days in New York learning stage combat, musical theatre and improvisation skills from Broadway stars starring in Finding Neverland.

Trip leader Eddie Aylett, assistant headteacher, thanked the students for an amazing experience.

He said: “All students were a credit to the academy and have learnt techniques that will help them in GCSE examinations. The experiences of education outside of the classroom are invaluable and teach independence, independent learning environments and life skills, something every person requires.”

There was some time spared to take in the sites though, with visits to the Empire State Building, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge and Times Square.
