Our Prep-Year 6 boys are fully immersed in rehearsals for our production of Shrek, to be held on Thursday 20 September, at 7.00pm, in our CM Wood Centre.
Every second year, we hold a Junior School Production, and this provides another opportunity for boys to shine in an area in which they have strengths and a passion, and/or to accept the challenge of performing on stage in a larger scale production. While there are so many social and emotional benefits from being involved in the Production, (think Compass points of Confidence, Fulfilment, Responsibility, Commitment…) rehearsals occur in a manner that still allows for the boys’ curriculum to continue in a relatively normal manner.
A Dress Rehearsal/Matinee will be held on the Thursday afternoon, at 1.00pm and we are hoping for a large and rousing crowd in the evening.
We are all looking forward to seeing our boys again working together as Prep-Year 6s to provide another memorable and enjoyable event.
FARMER WALL: THIS IS ME
We were delighted to have our very own Farmer Wall as our “This Is Me’ guest speaker in Assembly last Monday. With his dry wit and passion for farming and the environment, Farmer Wall engaged us all with stories of his childhood, including riding a buggy to school. He spoke about the importance of farms, how animals contribute so much to our lives, the challenges that farmers endure, and the resilience he has had to show, from buying and running on his farm at the age of 11, through to the tragic death of his daughter. It was another inspiring presentation from a guest at Assembly.
