Roseland Hosts "All Boys Dance Platform" on Wednesday 25th February!
Boys Dance Platform

The Roseland Community College will be hosting an exciting ‘All Boys Dance Platform' event on the evening of Wednesday 25th February to celebrate the explosive talent of boys dance! Students have participated in a series of dance workshops this term leading up to this event, bringing together professional male dancers and young dancers in training, and on 25th February we will be welcoming dance groups from both Devon and Cornwall as part of the Merge8 programme funded by the Arts Council. Local dance practitioners Suzie West and Rob Mennear have brought three schools together for the Merge8 project featured in the platform: students in Years 8, 9 and 10 from The Roseland Community College, Callington Community College and Bodmin College have been rehearsing with professional dancer Rob Mennear to create some exciting pieces of contemporary dance. The Merge8 Project is currently researching and facilitating partnerships between professionals and schools to build aspirational experiences for our students. Suzie West, Teacher of Dance at The Roseland, is leading the research and managing the various dance projects across Devon and Cornwall. She will be working hard this year to evolve strong and creative relationships between The Roseland and partner organisations. Come and support our talented young students in this stunning showcase of boys dance! Tickets can be purchased on the door on the night at £3 per person, or may be reserved in advance by contacting Suzie West, email: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .

GCSE Music Trip to Hall for Cornwall
To support their studies Year 10 GCSE Music students attended a Cornwall Music Education Hub concert which took place at the Hall for Cornwall on Tuesday 27th January between 11am and 1pm. The concert was designed for secondary schools and GCSE Music students attended from across the county. The event featured some exciting live performances as well as some discussion and analysis relating to the works. Students enjoyed a wide ranging programme which included Pachelbel's Canon and the Haydn Emperor Quartet performed by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra string quintet; Music for Sitar and Tabla performed by John Mayer and Mitel Purohit; and contemporary music by Moby.  
Combined Truro Schools Art Exhibition 2015
0215acombined_arts_project.jpgOver the last few months our Year 10 GCSE Art & Design students have taken part in a series of art workshops with visiting professional artists, as part of the annual programme of Combined Truro Schools Arts Events. This successful project for secondary schools in the Truro area is now in its eleventh year and the theme for 2015 is drawing. Last term included a trip to Plymouth University for cityscape drawing, and this term's workshops have included design and screen-printing workshops led by artist Tony Minnion, which took place at Truro High School for Girls and The Roseland Community College. The resultant pieces of work, created by Year 10 students from the various schools, will shortly be displayed in a public art exhibition entitled "Drawing A Conclusion" at the Lander Gallery, Lemon Street, Truro in March. Following a private view for an invited audience on the evening of Wednesday 4th March,  the exhibition opens to the public from Thursday 5th until Tuesday 10th March, and we highly recommend a visit if you are in Truro at this time!
Roseland Christmas Celebration 2014

1412_roseland_voices.jpgOn Thursday 11th December we held our annual Christmas Celebration at Probus church. The evening was a fantastic showcase of musical talent on a seasonal theme, and we are extremely grateful to the church for providing us with such an atmospheric venue this year!

The varied programme featured outstanding performances by our college ensembles, including "Santa Claus is coming to Town" by our ukulele orchestra; "A Fairytale of New York" by folk club; "Emmylou" by our Roseland Voices choir; and "Walking in the Air" by Steel Roses, our college steel band. Other highlights from the evening included a captivating performance of "Silent Night" on hand chimes by Year 11 GCSE Music students, and "Love Me Again" by a Year 10 GCSE Music ensemble.

There were also some superb soloists, including a Christmas medley for piano solo arranged and performed by Molly Curgenven; "Frozen" performed by Jacob Sellors on classical guitar; and vocal performances by Hania Barendt, Jack Retallack, Senan Davies, Harriet Eastwood and Yana Williams. The evening also featured the staff band's version of "Driving Home for Christmas" as well as some traditional Christmas carols played by violinists Ellie Crompton-Brown and Lawrence Calverley and guitar trio Imogen Sellors, Mia Senior and Jacob Sellors. The programme ended with "Sleep Won't Sleep" - an uplifting finale involving all our ensembles, soloists and a horn section put together for the event. Mulled wine and mince pies completed the evening which was enjoyed by all and has surely got us in the mood for Christmas! A huge thank you is extended to the church and to all the Roseland staff and students who made this event possible. One audience member commented,

"Please could you convey our thanks and appreciation to the music department and all of the staff who were involved in tonight's Christmas Celebration: it was a hugely enjoyable evening with superb performances. Our thanks also go to your students who conveyed such accomplishment, enthusiasm and excellent collaboration.  We are very glad to have been part of the audience tonight."
