Students from a New Milton school for those who find it difficult to learn in mainstream education have proved they have skills in song and dance.
The students from the town’s Eaglewood School, who took part in the show at the New Forest Arts Centre, were aged between 12 and 15.
There were solos and group dances, and two stars sang the Encanto song while the whole cast belted out a rendition of ‘Revolting Children’ from the musical Matilda.
They also lifted the roof with a high energy performance of ‘Teacher’s Pet’ from the film School of Rock.
Staff from the arts centre helped the children, as did choreographer Carly Simmerling.
Sharon White, head of creativity at Eaglewood, said: “I’m so proud of the students’ commitment and dedication to the project.
“All rehearsals massively paid off and to see their big smiles as they came out onto the stage was amazing.
“As the school’s creativity programme evolves, we hope this fantastic performance is just the beginning for our lovely students.”
One parent said: “The show was life changing for my boy, he is a different person and I can’t thank you enough.”
Students were presented with certificates to mark their achievement, and all have shown much greater confidence.
Eaglewood School was launched in 2016.
