Around Australia School Concert

Last night was a HUGE night as we all performed in our School Concert. It was based on the story “Are we there yet?” which tells about a family’s adventure travelling around Australia. They visit many exotic locations around Australia as they tow their caravan with their VW combi van. Each class performed two items featuring all Australian music. There was dancing, singing, drama, drums, sticks, bag pipes and lots of jokes.
We all loved the night and had a special surprise when all the teachers came out and sang “I will survive” from the Aussie movie, Priscilla, Queen of the desert.
The finale featured the whole school singing ‘We are Australian.’ It was a wonderful night showcasing the extraordinary talent of all of our students.

Ambient Orchestras came to our School

Wordle: performing arts

Last week we were very lucky to have Ambient Orchestras come to our school and inspire us to become songwriters, musicians and performers.

We were divided into 4 groups. Each group wrote a song about one of the 4 seasons, made up dance moves, then incorporated music and sound effects. It was an amazing day as we all developed new talents and became performers. The whole school came to watch our show. We felt proud!
