February 26th, 2010    Author: Staff Report    Filed Under: News

Students in Joan Stearns health classes at West Clermont Institute of Performing Arts became Thespians and playwrights during the week of Feb. 22 to share some of the information they’ve learned in health class.

The students put together a program of skits and music to teach younger students about health issues which they face every day.

The students included familiar characters, both functional and dysfunctional families and friendships to relay the theme of healthier lifestyles.

The series of skits was performed three times to three different audiences on Tuesday, Feb. 23 at Glen Este High School. They performed for their peers, for eighth grade students and for their parents.

They took the show on the road Thursday, Feb. 25 for elementary students at Summerside Elementary School.

The gifted health students got opportunities to use their talents which included performing musical numbers, dancing, acting, writing and preparing the costumes and sets.

Some of the issues addressed by the plays were healthier eating habits, teenage pregnancy, the need for exercise and mental health issues.
