High Expectations, Inclusivity, Students with a Voice, Excellence for All!
ART EXHIBITION AND SOIREE NIGHT
What a sensational night! I am sure that you will all agree that the art work exhibited was of an exceptional standard. The work on display reflected the time and effort that the students put into their work using different mediums and skills to present an outstanding display.
Ms Liz Kelly-McAlister has throughout the year, enabled the children to develop the skills where they have flourished in presenting a variety of pieces of work. The classroom teachers, in conjunction with the students, also created class pieces, which were proudly endorsed for the Auction. Thank you, Ms Liz and the classroom teachers, for the time and effort in the work that was proudly displayed.
The School Choir once again sang a repertoire of songs that they so willing presented with eagerness to the audience. Thank you, Ms Serena Jordan-Munro, for continuing this work within our school.
The musicians played their instruments with great pride, skilfully showing the work that they have been learning during the private music classes throughout the year.
Thank you to the members of the PFA and in particular to the Years 5/6 liaisons who worked throughout the night to bring a beautiful spread of food and drinks. The creation of a friendly and happy atmosphere reflected the celebration of the community spirit. A special thank you for organising a real auctioneer who came and conducted the auction creating some exciting bidding. This wasn’t “The Block” but with this special element, came very close!
I believe that this special bi-annual exhibition grows bigger at each presentation, as it not only shows the great talents that we have in our school, but also brings the families together to acknowledge the greatness we have in our children.
