2016 Concert- Come Fly With Me Around The World With Disney

Our Whole School concert took place a few weeks ago at the Clocktower Centre in Moonee Ponds.

The students did a fantastic job and the show was a hit. Here are some pics from the night! I wish I had more but it was so busy backstage with all the costumes, props, noise and nerves.

School Concert 2016

The whole school concert is only weeks away. Thursday the 13th of October is the big day so make sure you have booked your tickets.

Students have been busy practising and making, designing and preparing for the big day.

Here are some photos of students working on props in the art room. Look out for these on the night of the concert.

A big thank you to the Foundation students who decorated with such detail and thought the tiles for the magic carpet and the year 3/4 Students who cut them out and stuck them down to create the magic carpet. It looks lovely and the Foundation students where so proud! img_5229 img_5230 img_5234 img_5235
