Theatrical Event - "Captain Duncan's Diaries"

As part of the Key Stage 3 English Curriculum, pupils have been studying a scheme of learning based around the theme of FEPOW. 

On Thursday, 25th April, The English department arranged a live theatrical event for all Year 7 and 8 pupils. The play: ‘ Captain Duncan’s Diaries’ was based on Captain Atholl Duncan, a local Wirral man, who was captured by the Japanese in 1941 and subsequently imprisoned in various camps in Java and Singapore. He survived the war and his diaries live on in the form of two books which were written by his daughter, Meg Parkes.
