As the musical production draws nearer, students continue to perfect their roles in the performance. Fortunately, the musical is integrated into the school literacy, numeracy and physical education curriculum. When teachers plan literacy lessons, Peter Pan is used as a basis for classroom tasks. Learning the dance routines forms part of the physical education program while critical thinking and problem solving form part of mathematics lessons as all participants have countless opportunities to creatively tackle challenges whether it be remembering lines, adjusting staging to show off everyone’s face or mastering a tricky scene change.
All students and staff arrived safely back in Melbourne after spending four days at Mt Buller. Students enjoyed the opportunity to learn the skill of snow skiing. A huge message of thanks is extended to all staff who attended, as this camp is a particularly challenging one for supervising teachers. I would also like to thank parents who offered to drive some of our students to and from the mountain. Once again – a very successful snow camp.
