Kings School is twinned with Hockerill College in Bishop’s Stortford in UK. A group of around 25 students along with staff visit Kings School in India every year. For the last seven years while they are with us, they have generously provided opportunity for Year 7 pupils to enact theatre productions. During their two week stay, they train the students, host rehearsals and finally show the finished production.

The plays produced so far have been ‘The Jungle Book’, ‘Aladdin’, ‘The Lion King’, ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘The Wizard of Oz’, ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’ and ‘Peter Pan’.

Recently, under the leadership of Dr. Kevin Purday, teachers Mrs Angeline Lee and Mrs Marie – Lorraine Cunin and twenty students visited Kings Schools. They performed ‘Alice in Wonderland’, the story of Alice’s dream in which she encounters the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, the rabbit and the Duchess in a series of comical scenes, accompanied with music and dance. It was a great honour and opportunity for the Kings students of Year 7 to have the opportunity to interact with native English speakers and discover their artistic talents. Each Kings student performed their acting roles with great enthusiasm and professionalism.
