Whitehorse Spring Festival Performance

Congratulations to all the students in Junior Glee, Glee A, Blue and Gold Crews and the Diamond, Ruby, Crystal, Opal and Sparkle Dance Troupes who performed at the Whitehorse Spring Festival. We were glad that the weather remained fine and it was wonderful to see families setting up picnic blankets ready to watch the students perform the first item on the Main Stage for the day. The students sang and danced with huge smiles on their faces. A huge thank-you to all the staff who volunteered to assist in the dressing room and backstage, which allowed us to have such a large group of students perform.


Victorian State Schools Spectacular

On 10th September, 2016, sixteen students performed at Hisense Arena for the Victorian State Schools Spectacular. We were lucky to be able to have this amazing experience and perform in this wonderful show. We usually rehearsed every Wednesday morning before school, but we also had some regional rehearsals at another school. We believe we did an exceptional job performing. We worked really hard and hopefully the school will be selected to perform again. Thank-you Mrs Whiteoak, Mr Miet and Miss King for being a part of this journey with us. Also thank-you to Mrs Volz and Miss Whitelaw for helping on the Saturday performance.

The Victorian State Schools Spectacular will be broadcast from 7.00pm on Channel Seven on Saturday 3rd December, 2016.

Dance Fair Victoria Choreographic Competition

 

Burwood Heights PS - Overall Primary School Champions 2016!


The students in Grade Five and Six had the opportunity to enter the Dance Fair Victoria Choreographic Competition. Many students were keen to enter and we had a dance off at school at the end of February to select which students would represent the school at the competition. We were allowed to enter two solos, two duos and two teams for both Grade Five and Grade Six.

The students had weekly rehearsals to choreograph and refine their dances for the competition and as the competition date became closer many required extra rehearsals to complete their dances in time. The students who were working in groups learnt a lot about team work and the importance of negotiation.


On Saturday 23rd April, eight Grade Six students competed and on Saturday 28th May, thirteen Grade Five students competed in Dance Fair Victoria’s Choreographic Competition.  The students performed confidently and enthusiastically in front of a large crowd, made up of their families and friends. The students were respectful back stage, encouraging to their fellow competitors and were wonderful representatives for the school.


At the end of the Grade Five competition night they tallied all the points from both nights and we were excited to hear them announce that Burwood Heights Primary School was the overall Primary School Champions for 2016!

A special congratulations to the students who were awarded places:

Grade 5 Solo 3rd Place – Holly

Grade 6 Solo 1st Place – Kristy

Grade 6 Solo 3rd Place – Amelie

Grade 5 Duo 1st Place – Frances and Tori

Grade 5 Duo 3rd Place – Khushi and Tarana

Grade 6 Duo 1st Place – Amelie and Isabella

Grade 6 Duo 2nd Place – Belinda and Kristy

Grade 5 Team 1st Place – Alisha, Ashlee, Diana and Kaelyn

Grade 6 Team 1st Place – Amelie, Belinda, Isabella and Kristy

All students who competed should be very proud of their effort!
