High School Musical
After months of hard work and learning it is finally HERE, High School Musical live on stage in our own O’Connor Gym. A huge thank you to Melissa Killen, Sarah Watson, Melita Roache, Anthony Carlon, Duncan Carmichael, Jenny Roff, Glenn Watson and all cast and crew for the enormous contribution you have made to this musical and the College in general.
Our focus is on learning so how can participation in an event like High School Musical move students learning forward? In the recent Focus article, I highlighted the reasons why this is so important:
The skills needed for students to flourish in this world include creativity, collaboration and teamwork, problem solving and critical thinking. Arts education plays a vital role in enhancing and embedding these skills. O’Connor is proactive in supporting these skills in a range of endeavours including our production of High School Musical. By participating in this area, students and staff work collaboratively on a production and the finished product is of a high standard that they can be proud of. The skills they learn will help them now and into the future. Not only that it is FUN! O’Connor is a community ‘Founded on Faith and Focused on Learning’ What a great way to learn!
I hope you have got your tickets for this sold out event!
