The academic workshops included creative writing with author and parent, Amanda Barnsley-White and a crime fiction session with author Margaret Duffy.

Music featured was a central part of the week with several unplugged and ‘pop up’ music performances by pupils and staff, an inspiring evening of Samba with six-piece jazz band Orpheus, the Mount Kelly Choral Society performed a moving rendition of Carmen Burana and the Prep Summer Concert on Wednesday night was highly acclaimed and showcased the best musicians and choirs at the Prep.

Drama was also a major part of the Festival, with showcases by pupils and the Festival ended with a performance in the marquee by Extravaganza! – a fun and outrageous comedy by visiting theatre company La Navet Bete.
