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!

 

Bamboozle at Harmony Fest by Holly Mc

March24

On Sunday 22nd March, Bamboozle performed at the Ballarat Harmony Festival. First Bamboozle met in a small room (the green room) at the Mining Exchange. Then we took the mats and the equipment into the big performance area. 

Next we started our workshop. We had lots of different people come and try equipment. 

It was a great day. At the end of it we all felt proud that we were representing our school.

I have achieved my goal of walking on stilts without falling down at all.  I feel awesome because I have achieved a really cool goal. Now I am going to work on my other goals. 🙂

I feel very happy because I have practiced a lot and achieved my goal of walking on stilts for 20 steps, without falling, and without help from anyone.  Now I am going to learn to do float up and elbow spin using a hula hoop. 

Sruthi’s Goal

March23

I have achieved my goal of walking on stilts for 6 steps. I’m now trying to walk further without anyone helping me.  I can also fall safely onto a mat when on the stilts.  I felt proud of myself because of the hard work I did to achieve my goal.  Next I’m going to walk on stilts while using one piece of circus equipment as well.  🙂

I have achieved my goal of falling safely onto a mat while wearing stilts.  It made me feel great.  I am going really good walking on stilts. I can walk with a stick and Zac helping me.  I hope to be able to walk by myself soon. 🙂

I saw lots of people on stilts, and I thought, ‘How do they do that?’  Then when I got the opportunity to go on myself I added it as my goal.  I can walk on stilts holding onto people, and I can fall safely onto a mat.  My next goal is to walk by myself and to get my stilt licence.  I’m excited about doing that. 🙂

I’ve achieved my goal of learning to fall safely on stilts onto a mat. It was fun and hard.  I also learnt how to walk on stilts by myself.  I can walk around the mat without anyone hanging on to me.  I feel good about learning my semester one goal. 🙂  Haylee S

I achieved my goals

March16

Today I managed to walk more than twenty steps on stilts, and best of all I didn’t have any help!  It wasn’t really hard achieving my goal because I’m good at balancing. The fun bit was finally being able to walk by myself.  I’m so happy I have my L plates and can walk on stilts in the playground.
