Whole School Performance

Last week our whole school was lucky enough to have an artist in residence to teach us all about dance, family, culture and much much more! Bernard brought with him many cultural dances and equipment so everyone could learn something new and also challenge themselves.

The grand finale on Friday night was our whole school performance held at the High School which had a fantastic turn out and even got a few parents up on stage to show their moves (encore please!)

As you can imagine all the students had an amazing time, not just up on stage but also during rehearsals. It's amazing how much we picked up in only 1 week! and many were still asking for more. "Can we do this?", "Can you show us that?" could be heard at every session.

Below is a collection of messages from 1/2L students and some photo's from Friday night's performance.

Thanks once again Bernard, we miss you already!!

Bernard has been really nice to us. He has been showing us dances he has been talking about respect. He showed us the hoops and the pois.  We did 4 dances.1/ the uli uli shakers2/ the ski one3/ the Hawaii santa4/ the sweep. I like this because it takes a long time. I felt happy because Coober did the hip hop dance and it was really cool. One day I'd like to do that.  By Dylan.

Dear Bernard, Thank you for teaching us the shama lama ding dong! From Brodie

Dear BernardThank you Bernard for teaching me so many dances.  I felt really really happy, exited and a bit nervous.  I was nervous because there was a lot of people.  I really liked the shama lama ding dong and the uli ulis.  I really wanted to have more time with you.From Lachlan
