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.

Our focus is on the Performing Arts and we hope to experience
