School shines in concert
St Joseph’s Primary School has put on a colourful concert, involving the whole school.
The concert comprised a range of colourful acts involving dance, singing, instrumental and acting.
The school community was entertained by a range of music including some Japanese versions of Disney’s, Let it Go and Pitch Perfect’s Cup song including harmonies by the school choir.
A highlight of the night was a visit from a llama who danced with the preps to the music of Amanaska’s, Bag the llama.
St Joseph’s children have been inspired by the works of Simon Lewis from their earlier visit from Amanaska through the education section of Musica Viva.
The concert also featured some multimedia presentations of the children’s pets dancing along to the music of Amanaska in the transitions.
Performing arts specialist Deborah Pasztor co-ordinated the concert, said she wanted to thank Japanese specialists Mon Francis and Jenny Dunn for organising the Japanese contributions to the concert.
Mrs Pasztor said she wished to also thank new physical education teacher Cindy Chalmers for assisting the children with the dance items.
The concert was a whole school effort from the office staff to all the teachers assisting with rehearsals.
‘‘This supports the children with their learning and allows them to shine,’’ Mrs Pasztor said.
