Independent Learning Time
First thing this morning, the following students worked with Mrs Hong on their traditional Vietnamese dance in the Hall.
Those that remained in class were involved in either finalising Assembly scripts/presentations/iMovies, painting our UFO prop, rehearsing specific group sections for our ‘Go Bang’ dance with Mrs Higgs or working on a new Prodigy assignment.
Prodigy – student focussed on answering and solving addition problems. Mr Bartold came in to support the students and enjoyed working with Omid and Anyuat.
Prop Painting – Skye, Kristina and Zahra worked well together to begin painting our main prop.
Assembly Practice and Fitness – Dance Rehearsal
Wow, wow, wow!! This dance is going to blow your socks off! The students now know all of the routine and formations and have been demonstrating the choreography with energy and sharpness. We can’t wait to share it with you on Friday morning!
Ash Wednesday – Whole School Mass
After recess, the school community gathered in the Hall to celebrate Ash Wednesday.
Students received the ashes on their forehead at the end of the day and were anointed with the words ‘Repent and believe in the Gospel’.
We spent the afternoon in the Hall and on stage, running through the Assembly sections from start to finish. It was an important time of the students as they learnt their cues of when to speak, come on/go off. Scripts have been printed and will be used in the run throughs tomorrow. Students with speaking parts will be encouraged to bring it home to practice over night on Thursday.
