Our School concert! Moorabbin Mystery Inc….What a night… well done to one and all!!
An incredible amount of work has gone into this year’s concert from our teachers, parents and most importantly our students. Preparations began early in the term to ensure that what was enjoyed last Thursday night was entertaining, show cased our talented students and gave everyone the opportunity to have fun! The script was written by Mr Leeden again this year. The teacher act is more about the staff putting themselves forward and showing the students that our school concert is about everyone “having a go” and from all accounts I heard that this years was fantastic!!! The most important acts are the performances that come from your children!
Thank you to all our parents who sewed, glued, painted, put on makeup, helped with the costumes and props. We are so grateful for all your continued help and support. I want to personally thank all the parent volunteers who were there on the doors/at the hall ushering our community through to their seats. We try something different each year so your feedback is valuable and important to me and the staff as we commence planning for 2018. We will be having a concert debrief and I welcome any suggestions for next year. Please take the time to send through your thoughts.
I have a few more words of appreciation that I need to share with our community, without this support a whole school concert isn’t possible:
To Miss Amy Howden for overseeing and directing her third concert at MPS, we know that she had spent countless hours working extremely hard with recordings, extra practise sessions with students and the choir. She worked with lots of different people both at school and behind the scenes. Along with Mrs Triplik, they produced the very popular website for the children to visualise and have a starting point for all the dance moves. To Mr Leeden for writing the script, taking all the class photos which are now ready in each classroom for you to view, including a copy in the school foyer (near the sick bay entrance). Mr Leeden also worked with our Year 6 lead roles and coordinated extra practises so they would remember their lines. To our Office Staff and Aides for the ticket collections and keeping the records of payments and who helped with the children, keeping them calm and for coming along on the night of the concert. To Mrs Triplik and Miss Howden for the extra work on the choreography…. The items and moves looked fantastic! Thanks to all the teachers and specialists who supported the students across the term and on the night. To Mrs Schmauder, Miss Manserra and Mr Corrigan for stepping in and keeping things calm and organised.
Thank you everyone!
