THEMES

CHESHAM PARK COMMUNITY COLLEGE, Chesham, Buckinghamshire
"MELTDOWN"

    Meltdown shows how the breakdown of a family unit can emotionally affect teenagers. This piece shows two distressed families where parents split as a result of alcohol abuse and domestic violence. This leaves their teenage children frustrated and isolated depending on their growing friendship and the support of their friends to carry them through this traumatic period of their life.

DENBIGH SCHOOL, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire
"Can science solve our problems?"

    It is a fool who plays it cool by making his world a little colder. With each day that passes we are no wiser but still older. Science can show us the way, but it is only us who can follow. Now the heat brings floods and with them even more sorrow.

HERTSWOOD SCHOOL, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire
"In Your Genes"

    Have you ever thought about what the future holds for you? Isn't it a scary thought to think some things are decided long before you are even born? Through our piece we aim to explore the affect of Genetic disorders and how they impact the life of the person and those around them.

MONK'S WALK SCHOOL, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire
"Knife and Death"

    Knife and Death. In a society where the status of knives is promoted and encouraged by The Media, we explore a teenager's struggle with her home-life leading her to look for a sense of belonging in all the wrong places. Instead she finds judgement, violence and death along the way. Where did it all go wrong? Is it too late to change?

NORTH HERTS COLLEGE, Stevenage, Hertfordshire
- No show

RICKMANSWORTH SCHOOL, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
"Orpheus Descending"

    Tragically, Eurydice collapses in Orpheus's arms during their marriage and is taken from him by the Angels of Death to stand by Hades's side in the underworld. Refusing to accept his wife's fate believing that love will triumph over death, Orpheus sets off to find her not knowing what lies on the path ahead. And we are going with him.

SEEVIC COLLEGE, Benfleet, Essex
"When We Walk...?"

    We each leave our print on the planet, a cause and effect of our existence. However our traces are beginning to show. We need to stop wasting energy and protect our atmosphere and the place we call our own. Take notice of our footprints, our carbon footprints. We Walk, Do you...?

STEVENAGE SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP, Stevenage, Hertfordshire

THE HEMEL HEMPSTEAD SCHOOL, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire
Theme for the website expected from the school later ?"

THE WYE VALLEY SCHOOL, Bourne End, Buckinghamshire
"Happily Ever After"

    A familiar tale I?m sure you will find, with goodies, baddies and a Fairy Gok Father. Our story is a classic tale of unjust oppression, and good overcoming evil with a triumphant reward. As with all tales it begins with "Once upon a time", but the question is will there be a "Happily ever after" ?

GALLEY HILL PRIMARY SCHOOL, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire (Showcasing Junior Team)
"Roald Dahl's Cinderella"

    Darling little Cinderella was locked up in the slimy cellar. She bellowed "Help" and "Let me out". The magic fairy heard her shout and quickly, in no time at all Cindy was at the palace ball. I guess you think you know this story. You don't. The real one's much more gory.

TUDOR PRIMARY SCHOOL, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire (Showcasing Junior Team)
"The diversity of our world"

    Our theme is about the diversity of the world we live in. We have used ideas from Africa, India, Spain and America. We asked our friends, family and students from Hemel Hempstead School to help us. Our first track is from Sing Up which helps children to develop confidence and find their voice. We hope you like it, thank you.
