Ceramic artists at work

All our Infants students had the chance to squish, roll and mould clay in ceramic art classes this week.  The lessons were lead by Krystan Taylor from Ceramics in Schools and the children listened hard to each step-by-step instruction.
Upper First C (pictured) each made crocodiles, which fits in with their aboriginal art work studies, while 2nd classes are making rainforest trees.  Lower First (kindy) classes are making wall hangings showing their family members.
The works will be fired, then painted and glazed at the start of Term 2.   Come and see the final results at our Open Day (Sunday 26th May).

Lower First students meet their buddies

5th and 6th class students spent time with their buddies in Lower First this week.  The peer support program is a structured way to help our new intake settle in to the school.  The buddies meet weekly and everyone thoroughly enjoys the sessions.

Down to the details

Lower Firsts get ready for Shakespeare

Our youngest pupils were snapped this week rehearsing in the lead up to their Shakespeare Festival.   

Now that they’ve nailed their lines, specialist drama teacher Zoe Emanuel is focusing the children on details such as cues, entrances, exits, blocking and gestures.

The Infants Shakespeare Festival is on at the school from the 20th to 24th August.

Here, some of the Lower First students rehearse Speak the Speech - snippets of five Shakespeare plays including Romeo and Juliet, Henry V, Midsummer’s Night Dream and the witches’ scene from Macbeth.
