What a truly spectacular day and night we had last week with our school production of The Lion King Jr. We could not be prouder of our students and we have many stars in the making! School productions do not just happen; there was a huge team involved.

A very BIG thank you to Ms Sarah McGaw and Shino for all of their hard work and dedication to making our production such a success. Thank you to Miss Jen Pritchard for being our costume and set designer, to Mrs Mariana Suurenian for being the choreographer, to Mrs Merryn Gould for coordinating ticket sales, venue hire and much much more, to Brendyn and Tadyn Flood for building the set and being our stage crew on the day, and to all of our teachers and Inclusion Team for the help and support.

We also had many parents volunteer their time as well, thank you to:
Picking up costumes and taking them back to Reservoir – Dana Mole, Jodi Williams, Daniel Leow, Jennifer Holden. Tanille Jewell for fixing costumes.
Face painting – Miki Mollaei, Kate Williams, Taisiia Danchenko, Claire Lyons, Alison Main, Samantha Moffatt, Carol Tsang, Brigitte Chan, Yi chun Lu, Rameesha Illukkumbura, Maki Maeda, Birgitta Mabbett, Joanne Healy, Olivia Le, Alison Cassidy, Skye Demmler, Hannah Jenkins, Marita Kelly, Belinda Lee, Tracy Nguyen, Monica Lay and Miiky Lu.
Loading and unloading the truck – Steven Leung, Michael Baker, Cassandra Howard
Parent’s Association – Chantal McCrae, Allison Brudenell, Adrian Connard, Chris McCrae
We have received so many emails and phone calls from our community saying how much they enjoyed the show and we really appreciate you taking the time to do so, it means a lot.
