Last week the Bell Shakespeare group performed the ‘The Wonderful World of Will’ for our primary students. The players took the children back in time to a possible, and often hysterical, scenario of Shakespeare and Queen Elizabeth. Much fun was had as the performance tackled the language of the time, the themes of many of […]

Our students (and staff) have certainly enjoyed the sunshine this week. Hopefully, the good weather shall continue, and the fields will dry out so that our regular sports programs can take place. Lately, we have witnessed, and have been informed by our parents, neighbours, and most recently parents of Belrose Public School, of dangerous driving […]

It has been wonderful to see our students return this week. They have been full of stories of adventures from the holidays and excited to reunite with their friends. We begin this term by focusing on our core Value of Stillness. In our assemblies, we began with a reading from Epictetus, (a Greek Stoic Philosopher). […]

We are currently looking at student leadership throughout our school, within our value of Service. In its simplest form leadership is best shown through our actions by setting a positive example. This is clearly evident in our 6th Class students and also across the school as children look to those students in older grades. However, […]

Our Primary Shakespeare Festival performances this week have been a tremendous success. I can honestly say the quality has not dropped from what we would have expected at Glen Street. Each and every play is worthy of note, however, we would like to acknowledge the outstanding performances from 6th Class. Both these performances showed how […]

We continue to have a great deal of interest from prospective parents, both for starting Lower 1st next year and in higher year levels. Due to current restrictions, we are unable to take group tours, so visits have been with individual families. This has meant more tours, which has allowed more students across the school […]
