Students at Robert Smyth Academy are to showcase their skills at a Performing Arts event in memory of a former teacher who died earlier this year.

The event is taking place at the school this Saturday, October 3, and is a tribute and celebration of the academy’s former drama teacher, Sue Rosenbloom – better known to colleagues and pupils as Bloom.

The show is called CAIRS Concert 2015: In Celebration of Bloom, and is being organised by the Charity Action In Robert Smyth committee (CAIRS).

It is being held in the academy’s Main Hall beginning at 7pm, with doors opening at 6.30pm.

A spokesman for the school said: “The academy’s best singing, dancing, drama, and comedy will all be on show, along with the performance of some songs from the Academy’s popular production of the Queen musical We Will Rock You held back in November 2013, and directed by Bloom herself.

“Some ex-students are also returning to perform in order to celebrate their memories of their much admired drama teacher. Robert Smyth Academy and the CAIRS committee look forward to welcoming everybody this Saturday to an event which promises to be night to remember.”

A licensed bar, sweet bar, and cake stall will all be available on the night. Tickets cost £5 and can be bought on the door or by contacting the Academy on 01858 440770.

Money raised is for Save the Children and Dementia UK, which were supported by Mrs Rosenbloom.
