The Wild West Comes to Cranbrook!

On Wednesday 7th November, Onatti Productions presented a play entirely in Spanish for those students in Years 9, 10 and 11 who are studying the language.

El Viejo Saloon was set in the Wild West and the motley assortment of characters who visited the Saloon were played with gusto by the company’s two actors, ably supported by three Cranbrook students, who were invited to join them on stage. The language and grammar used in the script were pitched at an appropriate level, while the actors’ actions, facial expressions and use of intonation helped even those students who were relative beginners in the language to understand and enjoy the play.

Comments such as “I understood more than I thought I would” and “I recognised some phrases we’ve learnt!” meant that it was a useful and entertaining experience for our Hispanists.

Sports Day was highly competitive and so much fun for all involved. Events included track, field, fun relays and our favourite event Tug of War. Great way to finish the term! 😃 Photos courtesy of Ali Kittermaster. Gallery will be available from Monday.


Cranbrook 1st beat the OC’s in their last match of the season by 4 runs. What a brilliant game, clearly enjoyed by all. Good luck to the OC’s in your next few games. Well done and thank you to all our Year 13 Leavers, particularly Cam, Piers and The Laver lads. 🏏💪🏆
