Performing Arts Term 1 2018

This Term the Foundations are learning to sing ‘Advance Australia Fair’ in preparation for the school Assemblies.

We’ve been looking at the lyrics of the song and what they mean through a picture story book titled ‘Sing Australia’. Foundations will be given a copy of the lyrics to take home so that they can practise singing ‘Advance Australia Fair’ with their parents.

During term 1, Foundations will also learn a new song to perform at their first Assembly appearance. They’ll also experience different percussion instruments and learn what a music beat is.

The Year 1s and 2s will continue their music program consisting of: beat, rhythm, tempo and dynamics (loud and soft). They’ll play percussion instruments and learn to read music symbols. Both year levels will have opportunities to work collaboratively in groups while creating dance moves and singing to selected music.

Years 3 to 6 students will not have Performing Arts as a specialist subject until Semester 2 this year.

Choir visit to Nursing Homes

The Senior choir students yesterday visited 4 different nursing homes to sing Christmas songs. The homes are in Westmeadows, Tullamarine, Essendon and Meadow Heights. They always appreciate our visit and the residents and staff showed their appreciation. I’m very proud of the choir students’ beautiful singing and particularly of those who sang solo for the first time.

Well done Choir! We’ll continue the Nursing Home visits again next year.

‘Dancing Through The Decades’

Congratulations to all the students who performed 3 concerts for family and friends at the end of Term 3. Each grade were required to perform a song from one of the decades of 1950s to the 2000s. They practiced for several weeks during Performing Arts time and sometimes their teacher gave the students time to practice.

A big thank you to all staff of the school who gave wonderful support and assistance to ensure our concerts were a great success. Particular thanks to our Visual Arts Teacher who not only created the delightful backdrop of our concert but also worked hard behind the scenes, ensuring nervous and excited students were ready to perform.

For more pictures of the concert please visit our office area where a slide show of photos will be playing. These will be uploaded in the first week of Term 4.

With thanks

Mrs Heather Foletta

Performing Arts Teacher

Work Experience students

At the end of Term 2 we hosted thirteen Year 10 work experience students. Many of them were previous Greenvale Primary students and came from various Secondary schools. A big thank you to the teachers who accepted and mentored the students. We are also grateful for the work and assistance these students gave during their stay.
