We hope that you had a terrific break and are raring to go this term!
This term is always an exciting term as it culminates in the School Performance. This experience provides the students with an opportunity to perform and to learn singing, dancing and drama and be involved in prop and costume making. This year’s performance is called ‘Madagascar’ and we look forward to watching it all come together.
Please note, that this year the performance will be filmed and presented to our school via a movie premiere experience, later in the term to showcase our children’s talent.
Congratulations to the following students who received a Principal Award at Friday’s assembly. Well done: Savanah Campbell – Jarvis, Mahlea Barry, Harry Johnston, Eli Richards, Heath Pederson, Chudier Ruach, Abby Allan, Talaria Mackrell, Reid Clark, Rubi Parsons, Lachalan Brown and Seyi Oyinloye.
