PUPILS from Treviglas Community College told tales of the trenches during a performance at the Hall For Cornwall.

A group of 37 dance and performing arts students from Year 10 wowed the audience with their enactment of Stories Of 1914 on January 27.

Showcasing military marching, singing, and scenes that included the famous exchanges of Christmas 1914, the piece explored some of the farcical and darkly comedic aspects of the First World War.

Kernow Education Arts Partnership was behind the play, which used extracts from the musical Oh! What A Lovely War.

Byron, who took part in the performance, said: "This has been the best day."

Finlay added: "I was really scared before but now I feel really proud of what I have done."

Sam Colborne, leader of Learning for Performance and director of the piece, said: "Our students did so well, commanding such a large stage and clearly having a strong impact upon the audience. They have every reason to feel proud."
