A song and dance
Students take up musical roles in school production
ST THERESE’S Catholic School at Monto is a hive of activity on Monday afternoons with plenty of activities for the children.
The production Circle of Life will be staged in November at the community hall by the Pride of St Therese’s.
Based on The Lion King, students audition for roles and those who miss out will take up singing or dancing roles.
Director Melissa Hill said roles included Simba, Nala and Timon.
She said most students appeared to be enjoying the experience.
“The girls love it, not sure if the boys do as well but it sure beats maths,” Mrs Hill said.
Parent Carly Burnham is passionate about the school’s gardening club.
She said it was a way of teaching the children connections between themselves and their environment.
“By gardening the children can use their creativity to connect with the environment,” she said.
Teachers are integrating aspects of the club into the curriculum such as science and letter writing to organisations.
Being a church school, there is a religion class activity, involving making something that belongs in church.
