Creative workshops held by industry professionals saw half the children work with Duchy Opera to reproduce dancing and singing based on the Spanish Toreador.
The other half worked with dance professional, Sarah Waller, to create group pieces based around the theme of pirates.

Chair of govenors, Cathy Woolcock, said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the opera workshop and would highly recommend it to anyone. The children were completely absorbed by the task in hand and concentrated for the whole hour, which was most impressive.”
Primary and secondary school pupils from across the county took part in the second year of the event which took place in December.
Class three teacher at Gwinear, Kate Snook, said: “As an introduction to the arts award this truly was a magical day for all the children, staff and volunteers. The role of the arts in Gwinear School is so vital and I am thrilled to see the children’s enthusiasm go from strength to strength.
“I cannot emphasise enough how well behaved the children were on this trip. The excitement levels were clearly high, however every child on the trip was beautifully behaved and all were brilliant ambassadors for Gwinear School; a real credit to the staff and their parents.”
