A Trip Out of this World for Year 1s
By Lesa Eastwell, Year Level Leader - Year 1
The Year 1 students visited the Sir Thomas Planetarium in Brisbane this week. As this was many of the students' first excursion the anticipation was high!

Don’t be surprised if you see big, bright green ogres walking around Somerset College!
This week in the musical rehearsal, we have made great progress with our acting and choreography. All the cast have been putting an extra effort to make this musical a comical experience.
The Chorus is absolutely amazing - they seem to change their character on stage. The rats seem to be real rats! I bet you couldn’t tell it was your friend on stage. The Dulocians turn into human dolls that are perfect – because Duloc is a perfect town of conformists – thanks to the rule of Lord Farquaad (Geraint Evans).
Overall this musical is going to be fantastic! Just three weeks into practice and we are starting to perfect songs. This is astounding progress! Well done to the cast in Shrek The Musical JR.. From Broadway to Somerset College, the countdown is on with only five weeks to go until the curtain is drawn for the first performance. It’s going to be a smash hit so don’t forget the dates - Sunday 20, Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 March.
It was great to see a full attendance on Saturday with the first two scenes well underway with great performances by all. The Dragon played by (Iona Radcliffe) stole the show, strutting the stage with her diva performance.
Thank you to all our wonderful teachers and Mr Taylor for their dedication to producing another fabulous musical this year. A big thank you to Lilly and Sebastian for giving up their time to assist with choreography and performances.
So, break a leg between now and 20 March!« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
