Kenilworth Sixth Form pupils took to the stage to entertain sell-out audiences with street dance and music as part of events for Africa Week.

Organised by students to raise money for the cause, the shows saw 27 acts put on a mix of ballad style singers, rap, cheer dance, ballet gymnastics and poetry.

As part of Africa Week, the school welcomed guest speakers to lessons to give first hand accounts of work being done and lead discussions and workshops.

During the five-day event, students also sold cakes to raise funds, and fundraisers ended with a Swing Night where the school’s swing band entertained guests.

Students will now decide which charities will benefit from funds raised, and thanks have gone out to everyone who made events possible.
