we try not to think of all the hard times,

especially when we first started.

Some of us were worried,

others were just plain excited.


At the start we pranced through the door,

by the end we were dragging our feet passed the door.

You gave us a routine,

we had to work through.

It was a struggle,

but, we all made it through,

all thanks to you


Remember the days,

when Frances and Hannah

would groan at all the essays.

And on some days,

often rare, we even groaned about moving.


Drama was not only a subject,

It was more than that.

It is a place where some like Matthew found it safe.

When in drama as Frances agrees,

it helps express yourself and your needs.

Where no one can judge you,

for who you truly are.

And thanks to you who helped show us.


From our time this year,

Rebecca shared how drama helped her find the best of friends.

Drama has helped Hannah receive confidence.

You showed us it's okay to have a bad day.



And helped show Annie, the will to go on,

You helped Sacha when she was most upset,

with Emma and all her stress,

You spoke to liam when he was going through something tough.


We all had tough days,

which you helped us through.

We went through so much tissues,

and many 20ps filling the swear jar.


It wasn't all hard,

we had good times too.

Such as watching old videos,

laughing at Nathan for when he had a squeaky voice


we will all cherish the phenomenal times,

not wasting a single moment,

We may make mistakes,

we may all cry,

but, we all learned there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

And we learned that from you.


These were some memories,

some good times we shared.

So thank you so much,

from all of us to you.
