Global - is defined as relating to the whole world, and Tuesday’s performances by our PYP students lived up to this definition in so many ways! The Great Hall was abuzz with excited, talented children eager to show off their learning to an expectant audience.

The audience could never have anticipated the extent of the understanding and performance that they were about to witness.

From Prep students who are still developing their concept of a country, to Year 1, who by now understand that countries have differences, the younger students displayed their understanding through dance and song. Year 2 inquired into living things and grew their knowledge of metamorphoses explaining; “From little things, big things grow” and Year 3 revealed to us all how communication can influence our choices, especially those ‘catchy’ jingles we hear over and over!

Year 4 and 5 unveiled some incredible gymnastic feats and solo singing performances to remind us of the importance of gratitude, hope and serenity in a fast paced world and the positive qualities of leaders from the past. Last but not least, our Pre-Preps joined the performance with their colourful ribbons which they proudly swung as they paraded around the Great Hall.

Following the performances our College community came together outside the sports precinct to mingle and enjoy a buffet style lunch with food representative of so many cultures. As the students performed the closing song, we were reminded and affirmed of our College culture:

We are one, but we are many
And from all the lands on earth we come
We'll share a dream and sing with one voice……….
