School production all go
A brave pirate, a snooty fox, an excitable dog, a sleepy lion, a kind washer-woman and an iPad ‘‘ freak’’ are the main characters in St Joseph’s Catholic School’s latest production, ‘‘ The Magic Tree Book’’. These characters will be recognised from wellknown NZ stories by authors Joy Cowley, Gavin Bishop, Margaret Mahy and Lynley Dodd.
The story, written by Mrs Jemma Van Eijk, is about the importance of keeping a town library open even though children are always playing on their iPads rather than reading books.
All of the students are involved in the show and have been working hard dancing, singing as well as painting props.
Three exciting shows are being held at St Joseph’s School hall starting Monday, September 15 until Wednesday, September 17 at 7pm.
Tickets are $10 for adults, primary/ intermediate students $5 and pre-schoolers are free.
You can pick them up from the school office or at the door.
It’s going to be an amazing show – we hope you will come
along to see!
