The Art and English faculties are excited to announce a new competition for all our budding creative writers at Salesian. Students from Years 7 to 12 are invited to write a one-act play responding to the theme of ‘a time for giving’. There will be creative writing workshops taking place at lunch over Term 2 to help students in their projects and for the teachers to offer feedback and assistance.
The winners of the competition will have their plays brought to life on stage as part of our annual Christmas production, where they can stay involved with casting and directing their pieces. Students can write individually, in pairs or in small groups. So don’t be afraid to start collaborating! Plays will be due for submission in the last week of this term.
In addition to their plays being staged, the selected playwrights will also win a prize to see a professional theatre production! Our Christmas Play will once again be raising money for the St Vincent’s Christmas Appeal, and this year will also include the annual Salesian Art Competition.
VCE Music and Dance Excursion
The VCE Music and Dance classes travelled into the city recently to see an amazing production of West Side Story at the State Theatre. This production was staged by Opera Australia and featured world class singers and dancers. The students were enthralled by the timeless love story and dazzled by the spectacular dancing and singing. West Side Story is studied in both VCE Music and Dance with a score by Leonard Bernstein.
Our fantastic concert band have been rehearsing every week and have grown rapidly in skill and size. They performed a fun rendition of the classic “Funky Town” at the Whole School Assembly on 3 May. The students are eagerly rehearsing Bohemian Rhapsody and Havana among other pieces to perform at the end of term Play.
