The Trinity College London, Exhibition awards are highly prestigious and only given to the students who receive the highest distinction marks worldwide. Kate Twomey and Logan Forsyth were two of just nine New Zealand drama students to take top honours this year. The pair are the only Wellington winners.
It is the second time students from Drama Club, which was established in 2010, have received the awards.
Each year students who attend the after school drama classes have the opportunity to take Trinity College London examinations. The two award-winning students were
undertaking Grade 5 & 6 exams in the advanced level of the examination programme.
I’m so proud of Kate and Logan. It is an honour to receive an award of this level and it is testament to their hard work and enthusiasm.
Kate says “I was thrilled to be given such a prestigious award. Drama Club is an awesome mix of learning and fun – it’s great to get amazing achievements while having a great time pursuing our interests. It really helps having such an incredible drama teacher – Bridie is so committed and passionate about every student’s achievements.”
Next year, Kate and Logan will be moving onto the final examinations with Trinity College London.
