What a wonderful year it has been working with all of you.  I loved seeing your smiles, energy and enthusiasm in class and on stage.  I hope most of you decide to dance again next year so you can continue to work on your technique and develop as a dancer.  For the Grade Six students moving on to Secondary School I thank-you for your dedication and hard work over many years.

Regards,

Mrs Whiteoak

 

Whitehorse Spring Festival

On Sunday 19th October over ninety students performed on the main stage at the Whitehorse Spring Festival.

Senior Choir started the show by performing a new song they had been working on, ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’. Prep Dance Club had their first performance for the year and the Sparkle, Star and Diamond Dance Troupes performed ballet and jazz items.  All three Glee Clubs performed, with Junior Glee performing ‘It’s a Hard Knock Life’ for the first time. To finish off the show all the students had the opportunity to take a bow as the Senior Choir sang, ‘Lovely Day’.

It really was a lovely day as the sun was shining, the children were smiling and many families stayed around after the performance to enjoy the huge range of activities available at the Whitehorse Spring Festival.  Congratulations to all the students who performed, but especially to the Prep students who represented the school at a public event for the very first time.

If you missed this performance, don’t worry because all these groups will be performing again this year. All students in Dance and Glee will be performing in a Concert at the Kel Watson Theatre, at 7:00pm, on Tuesday 2nd December.  Senior Choir will be performing at the Remembrance Day Service, Assembly, Grade Six Graduation and several local community events.
