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!

Once upon a time ... On Monday afternoon, during the Junior School Assembly, the Junior School Concert Band presented Three Billy Goats Gruff with a special guest narrator (this may have been the fourth Billy Goat).
This work, with its soundtrack-like scoring, provides many musical moments for the band and they have really risen to the occasion. Providing the atmospheric music as well as the themes for the various characters, the band worked with the special guest narrator – none other than our Head of Junior School, Mr Paul Taylor - to present this fun and educational piece to all present.
Not only is the work humorous but it has a focus on character education with an important ‘anti-bullying’ message embedded in the narration. Thanks must go to Mrs Anne Rowe for all her hard work with this ensemble and to the group themselves for working so hard. We are looking forward to hearing their next presentation. Well done!« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
