Year 7 Performing Arts Achievement


Niamh Osborne Parkin (7W) played Abbie in the short film Grace's Story (2013). She worked with Emmerdale's writer Michael Lacey, Zoe Henry, Pauline Quirke and Producer Geoff Boyle.

In the 'slice of life' drama, Fifteen year old Grace lives with her little sister Abbie and her mother. Having recently spent six months in a care home, Grace has vowed that she and Abbie will never go into care again. The film is set in Leeds.

Niamh joins the impressive list of St. Mary's Menston pupils to appear on the silver screen including Hollywood stars Matthew Lewis and Christian Cooke.

Congratulations to Niamh for this wonderful and lasting achievement
