GRAFFITI is more often treated as vandalism by teachers, but it was just one of the more unusual art forms being celebrated at Ruislip High last week.
The Sidmouth Drive school was holding its annual arts evening, when parents were welcomed to the entrance lobby with a range of live music that included pop, piano and heavy rock.
The drama department hosted performances of Roald Dahl’s James And The Giant Peach and Ruislip’s acclaimed Italia Conti School held dancing sessions.
Refreshments were served by the Friends of Ruislip High and an ‘international kitchen’ sold onion bhajis, shortcake biscuits and garlic bread freshly cooked by food technology students.
GCSE student Sophie Hudson, who sang a song from Les Miserables, said: “I really enjoyed the evening, as it was such a good opportunity to perform. It made me proud to be a part of Ruislip High School.”
Marie Coltman, director of creative and expressive arts, added: “I am extremely proud of all of the students who took part in this year’s arts evening. They are an absolute credit to the school.
“It would not be possible without the commitment of our dedicated and talented staff and the continuous support from the parents of our school.”
