School Play

The Gisborne Boys' High School drama group recently staged Androcles and the Lion in their Assembly Hall to help raise funds for the school's new gymnasium.

Proving very popular with its audiences, the play was staged for an additional two performances, and swelled the gymnasium funds by more than £100.
