Fabulous Arts Extravaganza

November10

Hello Everyone. Just a note to say a BIG  THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who supported our Arts Extravaganza.  It was a great success and we’ve received lots of lovely feedback about the show, and everyone involved! 

A visiting artist mentioned that some of the art work in the foyer could hang in any art gallery in the world! Wow, that must have been wonderful for Miss Sharp to hear!  Congratulations to all the artists and Miss Sharp on the lovely display. 

They’ve also been complimentary comments about our clowns – even from the professional clowns who performed for us at the show, as well as the stilt walkers, belly dancers and our amazing roaming band.  Congratulations also to our NICA Sparks performers for their contribution to the evening’s entertainment. Who knew a sauce bottle could be so entertaining. 

Great music was made by our Junior and Senior Choirs and our school band, 800 Decibels rocked off. It was very exciting combining our musical and circus talents for the first time, and we think you all did an amazing job. 

Congratulations to our Bamboozle performers, many who performed on stage for the first time. You are all amazing and very talented. 🙂 

Special thanks to our guest performers, ‘Pancakes are for Breakfast’ who delighted us with their poetry, bananas and other strangely unimaginable things.  I wonder what that last thing was??? 

Finally, our National Institute of Circus Arts students performed a variety of interesting acts that demonstrated their developing skills in juggling, hat manipulation, hula hoops, tumbling and acrobalance.  Well done!

STAY TUNED FOR PHOTOS!

 

End of Term 1

March24

It has been a very busy term, with students performing at Willaura Hospital’s Market Day Fundraiser, and Ballarat’s Harmony Fest.  Both ventures have been very successful and the students have received some excellent feedback from organisers and members of the public.  Well done to everyone involved.  Special thanks to the parents who drove their children to these venues to perform.  Check out Holly’s report about Harmony Day under Bamboozle on the blog. 

Great work is being done by our Nica Sparks Troupe Members, and we look forward to seeing some items of work from them in term two.  They are managing the grueling schedule with a smile on their faces. Check out Callum’s reports by searching for Nica Sparks on our blog

Lots of students have now achieved their SMART goals, and have started writing about it on the blog.  We have invited parents to make positive comments  as well, so please leave some feedback for your children.  

We are due to visit NICA on the second Saturday of term 2.  Can’t wait to try out our next lot of tricks. 

Happy holidays everyone. 🙂

 

FIRST NICA VISIT

February22

Last Saturday, I went to NICA for the first time.  We met the trainers, played ‘Ant Hospital’ as a warm-up, and did our stretches.  The trainers then split us into three groups for our three activities.  First I did acrobatics, and I learnt to do a rocket jump.  Then I did juggling and I learnt how to juggle a hat.  Finally, I did hoops and I learnt how to do ‘Penguin’.  Thanks to Ms Fisc for organising the trip, and to all of the adults who came with us.  I had a great time.  By Jaime
