Performance Showcase / Clifton Springs has got Talent
the whole school and a good number of parents. There was no “final” as such, but rather a chance for
those students to showcase their talents in front of the whole school. Well done to all of our students who
performed in both the auditions and the showcase, and hopefully they have inspired other students to
step up next year. This talent show was inspired by our students wanting an opportunity to share their
talents and skills with their peers and with our school community. We have learnt a lot from this year’s
experience and are really looking forward to next year’s talent show. If you have any feedback or great
ideas, please feel free to drop us a line. I would really like to thank Chris our Techie, for his excellent
support in assisting me to make this event a reality.
Ebony receives a Regional Achievement Award
a Regional presentation luncheon at the Flemington Racecourse. Ebony is a wonderful young girl who has
achieved a lot and over-come a number of challenges, and her positive spirit and caring approach have
seen her shine through. Well done Ebony we are all very proud of you.
Good bye and thanks to Karen and welcome back Kylie
State-wide Transition Day Tuesday December 8th
We are excited to have all of our 2016 teachers available on the day. They will be able to spend time with their students but also be available after school for a brief “meet and greet” with parents and families as well. Our current Year 6 students will be transitioning at their respective Secondary Colleges for the day.
Bellarine Christmas Festival Dec 11th
This festival promises to be a wonderful evening and we are hoping to attract visitors from across the Bellarine to celebrate Christmas and sing Carols together. We are really excited about our line up which includes;
- some of our own students singing in massed choirs, along with our Just Brass students
- the Geelong West Brass Band,
- Opera Singer Janine Stephenson,
- Sarah Carol and the Ukulele Carnival along with other local artists, Anthony Dellamarta, Abi Grace, Tom and Jesse Harold, Connor Sheedy, and the Springdale Bush Band.
Students are asked to wear “Festive Dress” and are able to mingle amongst the crowd or sit with their parents until they are called to the stage between 7:00 and 8:30pm. While the staff will run the bulk of the food court and we are encouraging parents to participate and enjoy the evening, we are looking for a few helpers earlier in the evening to help setup/pack up and also to assist in supervising some of the activities. If you can help out in anyway please contact the school.
I look forward to seeing you all there on the night for what promises to be a great community event.
Queenscliff Music Festival
Until next week I wish everyone a wonderful week and remind all families that maximising attendance is a critical factor in your child achieving their potential so, remember it’s not OK to be away unless you’re sick!
