JUNIOR DRAMA Term Three 2016 Blog No. 1

PRE-PRIMARY DRAMA

In the first half of Term Three the Pre-Primary children learnt about a facet of Aboriginal Culture, via storytelling and “acting out” parts of a Dreaming narrative belonging to the Walpiri people, called “The Pangkarlangu and the Lost Child”. They also participated in a whole class structured improvisation, set on the farm, where they were portraying farm workers doing various jobs. They can be seen here portraying kittens in a role-play; being cosy in Pangkarlangu’s cave and participating in another improvisation about a Pet Shop.

YEAR ONE AND YEAR TWO

The Year One and Year Two children are very busy in drama learning & rehearsing musical plays for their End of Year Music & Drama Concert in November. The Year Ones are performing “The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe”, an amusing story about a class excursion that becomes an adventure. The Year Two children are presenting the well-known fairy tale “Cinderella” – but with a slight difference. In the photos below, the Year One and Year Two children can be seen rehearsing their plays.

Celebrating Religious Life Concert 2016

Last term the students entertained the Presentation Sisters and other Orders from the metropolitan area for a concert and afternoon tea.  This event was to celebrate the Sister’s Religious Life as well as conveying thanks for the work they do in our communities.   The Sisters loved the variety of performances from our primary students which included choral singing, violin, piano, saxophone, ukulele, recorder, flute, and guitar to name a few.  Below are some snapshots of the afternoon for you all to enjoy.  Many thanks go to the students who prepared performances as well as the music teachers who assisted in the preparation of individual and ensemble/choir performances.  The afternoon tea was a great success with students intermingling with the Sisters. Also, sincere thanks to  parents who provided the delicious afternoon tea and Sr Catherine for coordinating the event.FotorCreated FotorCreated1 FotorCreated2 FotorCreated3Ce
