On Thursday, 28th November, Y8 students enjoyed a lively adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. As part of their studies of 19th century literature, the Quantum Theatre cast helped Y8 not only to appreciate the story’s phenomenal popularity which helped to make Christmas the holiday that it is today, but also to consider the impact of greed and avarice on poverty.
