Time to Shine
What an exciting couple of weeks we have had in Primary with the auditions and the finals for Time to Shine.
It was a busy schedule with auditions every day but the finals made it all worthwhile.
On Thursday we held the Prep – Year 2 finals in the theatre with parents of the finalists and students from P – 2 as the audience. The theatre was packed to overflowing and the students performed like professionals. It was so difficult to decide the winners as there were so many fine performances on the day. So many staff members took on additional responsibilities or duties to make the finals a success on both days.
On Friday the Year 3 – 6 finals were held and we were all delighted by the talent which was displayed and once again the difference between the contestants was minimal. The decision was so difficult that we had to award a special commendation also.
At GCC we have always tried to identify and develop each student’s God given gifts talents. This isn’t always easy where it comes to performing arts but over the past couple of years we have been able to provide more opportunities for students to be able to “shine”.
The Results of the P – 2 Time to Shine were
1st – Connor Waskow – Zion
2nd – Bodie Hetherington – Zion
3rd – Jasmine Hazelden, Talia Demerutis and Annabelle Blinston – Sinai

Congratulations to Sinai House on a clean sweep!
Well done to all the contestants in the finals and a special congratulation to the winners. The judges enjoyed EVERY performance.
Placegetters will perform again at their assemblies on a Monday (Year 3-6) or a Wednesday (P – Year 2). They will be informed by Mrs Mitchell and Mrs Rosenberg when they will be performing.
Book Week Parade 27 August
This is one of the highlights of the year and a day which students and staff really enjoy. We always have such a wonderful response in terms of dressing up which makes the Book Week Parade so successful. Students should come dressed as their favourite book character and bring the book with them for the parade. The theme for 2015 is “Books Light Up Our World”.
Remember – the dress up can simply be items you already have at home – just be creative with accessories to represent the Book Character.
