GREASE was the word for high school students who performed a spectacular version of the classic musical three nights in a row.

Performing Arts pupils from the Harwich and Dovercourt High School played to packed audiences in the school hall between Thursday and Saturday last week.

Deputy headteacher Lynne Gettings was delighted with how the students performed.

“It was an amazing experience for the students and one they will remember for the rest of their lives,” she said.

“They were absolutely fantastic and the standing ovation on the last night was so well deserved.

“Parents, staff and members of the community are so proud of all they have achieved.”
