On Thursday 9th June, Leeds Rhinos player Jamie Jones-Buchanan visited Carr Manor to work with pupils in a Performing Arts class.
Jamie, along with our pupils, is taking part in a show called ‘Leeds Lads’ which is performed at the Carriageworks Theatre on Monday 20th June. The show looks at Leeds’ connection with the first World War, delving into the personal stories of the men and women who fought (and died) during the ‘war to end all wars’.
During his visit, Jamie spoke to pupils about his preparation for his first stage role, explaining how there are similarities to his vastly successful sporting career. Pupils performed their pieces in-front of Jamie ahead of the live performance.
It was a brilliant chance for pupils to work with Jamie in area that is relatively new to him and we really appreciate him taking the time to visit us here at Carr Manor Community School.
