The performing arts are alive and well across the Junior School campuses.

The ability to leave yourself behind the curtain, step out onto the stage and assume the persona of a fictional character requires courage, resilience and trust in both one’s fellow performers and the audience.

Last week our Year 5 students brought to life the magical world of fairy tales, with a new and modern twist. Their performance of six humorous and light-hearted stories both delighted and entertained the audience. Over the course of 60 minutes, the performers experienced the joy of supporting one another both backstage awaiting their entrance and whilst onstage reciting lines, bouncing off one another and at times filling unexpected silences.

The magic of the students’ storytelling is a true testament to their individual dedication to developing their dramatic knowledge, skills and abilities throughout this term’s Unit of Inquiry. Supported and guided by a specialist drama teacher, Emma Ingles, and their class teachers, Mr Nevill, Ms Elagha, Ms Quodling and Mr Quah, the students actively participated in weekly classes that developed their expertise and belief in themselves as performers.

The Year 5s’ performance and experiences throughout their Unit of Inquiry is a timely reminder of the importance of stepping out of our comfort zones, the power of collaborating with others and the incredible value of intentionally carving out time to share stories that bring us together through laughter.

Thank you to all of the students and teachers who transported us to a magical world of humour and joy.
