Time to Shine 2014

And indeed the students in the Primary College really did take this opportunity to show us what they could do and they did SHINE. In a College where there are about 450 students in the primary sector alone it is very difficult to actually be aware of the talent which is in the school. That’s what I love so much about this aspect of Legacy Cup    – Time to Shine.  It is an opportunity to give any student who wishes, a context to show his/her talent in any field of performing arts from hoola hoops to card tricks and everything in between.

There were separate auditions for Prep – Year 2 and Year 3 – 6 and the finalists performed in the theatre on Thursday and Friday last week. The judges at the auditions for the lower school actually became the adjudicators for upper school and the same for the upper primary judges. They adjudicated the final for the lower school and what wonderful finals they were. The children may be young but the talent was great.

The results for the two talent quests were required before the Middle and Senior Awards Night on 4 November, so it was a hectic start to the term completing all the auditions and grand finals.

The performances were judged in three sections

  1.  Preparation and Polish
  2.  Originality
  3.  Connection with the Audience

The adjudicators had a difficult time finalizing the winners but would like to like to congratulate every student who participated and particularly all the finalists.  We were so impressed with the huge number of students who auditioned for this Talent Quest. Their courage and confidence was impressive.

The medals for the winners were presented at the Year 3 – 6 and Prep – Year 2 assemblies this week and the winning students performed their items to all the students in their sector during those assemblies. You can view some of the winning performances on our Facebook page.

We have much pleasure in announcing the results of the grand finals.

CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT MONDAY 1 DECEMBER (PREP – YEAR 2)

CHRISTMAS CONCERT TUESDAY 2 DECEMBER (YEARS 2 – 6)

We will be emailing all primary families to request assistance for the P&F barbecue for both nights – Carols by Candlelight and the Year 3 – 6 Christmas Concert in the last week of term.

Our aim is to provide evenings where families can enjoy good food and the performances in a relaxed environment on the oval. But we need your help so please watch out for the email from the P and F. There will be a roster so parents will only need to assist for a part of the evening and this will not interfere with watching the actual performances on the nights.

Your children are already practising for their items and we are excited about these evenings.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Cheryl Bryers, HEAD OF PRIMARY
