Year 12 Production – SKOOL Daze



During week 8 the Year 12 Drama students are presenting “SKOOL DAZE” a performance based on the 80’s play “All Stops Out”. The play is about the challenges of sitting the HSC, and its role as a rite of passage for young Australians. Our performance has been modernised to incorporate a South Australian setting, with added scenes sourced from other plays and scenes based on social media.

Arts Showcase – a stand-out performance


Last Thursday 1st June, our 2017 Arts Showcase was presented to the community at the Hopgood Theatre. Highlights were the wonderful dance on display from primary and secondary students, our beautiful choirs and polished band, stunning vocal soloists including Year 6 Jayden P who has confidence beyond his years and Year 7 drummer Noah M who is performing at Year 12 standard. We also saw some innovation with hip hop dancer Vipop C interacting with a robot on stage, thought provoking short films and vibrant art works on display.

We were incredibly proud of how our students and staff all worked together to put on a great show. Thank you for the feedback from our audience sharing that they “felt humbled to be a part of the experience”.

Aboriginal Shelters : a lesson in Science, History and Technology

In Science our Year 2/3 students have learnt about shelter; a basic need for all living things, and in History we have discussed how the Aboriginal people lived in Australia hundreds of years ago and connected closely with the environment. In our Technology lessons, students worked in pairs to design, built and test their own models of Aboriginal shelters, that were made from natural materials found in the environment.
