The Winter Concert has certainly been the highlight of this week. Mr Byrne and Ms Thompson together with the instrumental instructors, inspired the music students to step outside of their comfort zone and show off their talents to families and friends. The vast array of talent was amazing and every student that participated should be very proud of their achievements. Mr Larsen and Ms Martin equally inspired four of our young actors to perform a one act play to the captive audience and again, the talent was exceptional. Performance is the reward for all the hard work our students do practicing instruments, singing songs and rehearsing lines. The Music Captains, Ashleigh Duncan and Jay Doorty instilled confidence in the performers by compering the evening in a confident and relaxed manner as well as helping set up equipment between acts. Photos of the performing students are on the Student Achievement page of this newsletter.
Whole College Assembly
A whole school assembly will be held on Tuesday 19 of July during Period 3 at the Senior Campus, all Junior Campus Students will be bussed to the senior campus during recess. This will be an opportunity for us to recognise and showcase the musical, acting, academic and sporting talent we have in our school and hopefully this might encourage other students to take risks, to participate in the broad range of programs we have on offer and to inspire some to show off their hidden talents. More details will be provided to students first week next term.
This year’s Wakakirri performance takes place early in term 3. Titled ‘Di-Ver-Si-Ty’, our production addresses the issues of bullying, harassment , self image and acceptance.
