Plight of Dr Barnardo’s ‘rooftop’ Victorian children brought to life at All Hallows School
20th Feb 2011

Parents of Year 5 pupils at All Hallows School might have been forgiven for thinking they had stepped into a West End theatre last week as the children wowed their audiences with a production of ‘Carrots’ bursting with fine acting, superb singing and stunning costumes.

Set in Victorian England, the storyline gave the children a deeper insight into the plight of orphan children and the period of social reform and supported their history topic learning.

“We are extremely proud of all the children” explained Headmaster Ian Murphy. “They have without exception thrown themselves wholeheartedly into making this production such a spectacle. They are an exceptionally talented and tight knit group bound strongly together by shared interests and genuine friendships. This sense of teamwork and collective achievement is enhanced further through being part of a production and is invaluable for their personal development. The associated memories stay with them forever.”
