Christmas Drama Festival Fun
The last Sunday of the Autumn term was once again given over to the annual Christmas Drama Festival, a competition between each of the boarding houses.
Students from Mowat, Westcott, Grosvenor and Kings', most of whom only joined the school in September, took the opportunity to showcase their drama skills by performing a range of different Christmas themed plays to an enthusiastic audience of SI staff, students and guests.
Months of preparation by each cast meant that this year the guest judges had an incredibly tough decision to make when choosing the overall winner.
Opening the show, senior boys from Mowat House showcased their comedy timing with a witty production of 'Elf'. Next up came the girls from Westcott with dance routines a-plenty in a colourful mash-up of 'Snow White and the 17 Minions'. The junior boys from Grosvenor stepped into Christmases past, present and future in their play involving some festive time-travel. Kings' were the last house to go with their interpretation of a Dickens classic, 'A Kingsmas Carol'.
For the first time ever this year, SI Staff came together to perform a Sherborne International specific version of the '12 Days of Christmas' which was well received by the students.
This years' raffle raised nearly £200 for local charity Friends of the Yeatman, a group which supports the hospital in Sherborne.
With praise and compliments for all who took part both on the stage and behind the scenes, and after the longest deliberation in recent history, the four judges crowned Mowat House the overall winners.
