Our children are very privileged to be able to view a great variety of visiting performances.
Andy Wright entertained the children in Term1 with his fabulous storytelling.
Some of those who have been in 2015 year include Ze Bong, Ronald McDonald giving his road safety message, Kahurangi Maori Dance Company, The Playhouse Theatre, 'John the Magician', Sean Choolburra and Barbara Kendall, Olympian and ANZ Ambassador.
ANZ Ambassador and Olympian Barbara Kendall visited our school in June and spoke to our children about her experiences, along with a very good message about 'always having a dream and trying your best to achieve it'!!
A group of our children attended a 'Captain Underpants' event at Bathgate School, and enjoyed the opportunity to hear author Dav Pilkey talk about his characters.
The Playhouse Theatre visited our school in Term 2 and put on a fabulous performance of their show 'Jack Flash'.
The Kahurangi Maori Dance Company visited our school in Term 1 and the children enjoyed this very high quality performance.
'John the Magician' mesmerized our Junior and Middle School children with his great 'end of term' show.
Safety with Ronald McDonald
'Ronald McDonald' visited our school and presented a great road safety message to the children around the 'Stop, Look, Listen' rule.
Our children enjoyed the performance by Sean Choolburra, one of Australia's most popular indigenous entertainers. Sean's performance included dance, storytelling and a demonstration of didgeridoo playing and this was a great experience of another culture for our children.
All the school children enjoyed a fabulous performance by the Southern Sinfonia on 23 November 2015. All four sections of an orchestra (strings, woodwind, brass and percussion) were represented in music played from a classical repertoire. The pieces were chosen because they highlighted the different instruments and because they were known to children from TV advertisements or from other sources. In addition, they played songs well known to students such as a movie themes and contemporary pop songs and the children particularly enjoyed these.
The amazing musicians from 'Strike' entertained our children with another awesome performance.
'Ze Bong, the Storyteller' captivated the children with his storytellng, all based on his colorful quilt that he brought with him.
He engaged and incorporated both the children and staff into his wonderful stories and his performance at the end of Term 3 was enjoyed by all.
