“Our Country’s Good” will be staged in the Mini Theatre. Performances start next Saturday March 25 19.00, and again during school hours on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (26-28 March) time TBC.
“Our Country’s Good” is the remarkable true story of how, in 1788, convicts on the first fleet to Australia, rehearsed and staged a play (“The Recruiting Officer” – still performed today!). The modern-minded retired naval Captain, Governor Arthur Philip was fully behind the idea, even though he was opposed by many of his officers.
FS children have been learning about dinosaurs. As part of their learning, they participated in hands on activities that included making dinosaur eggs, building dinosaur skeletons, and making decorations. We are learning through play. Well done children!
Last week, primary children have been involved in interesting scientific projects. They have displayed their works around the school. Well done for the hard work!
Year 9 had their Battle of the Bands house competition. All groups have written their own songs from scratch, and they have learnt to play and perform them. The Battle of Bands has yet shown other hidden talents from our Y8, original lyrics, fantastic performance. Looking forward to the final next week!
Last week, our U11 team participated in the Under 11 BSME Games which were hosted by Horizon School in Dubai. The children competed in basketball, football, swimming, athletics and netball. Well done to our team and many thanks to their coaches.
