Around the World in Just One Night

Our All Around the World Open Night on June 15 was an extravaganza of culture and school values.
 
Open to all families, friends and members of the community, the evening commenced with prayer and a whole school rendition of the Central African song Circle of Life. Year 6 student Mian George sang the solo while junior Creative Expression girls danced and twirled ribbons to captivating effect.
 
Due to the perfect weather, close to 250 people turned out for the games, rides, school tours, and international cuisine (Indian curry, Italian pizza, American hotdogs and Greek spinach rolls to mention a few). Cultural music was central to the evening, with each class performing a song from a different country.
 
Cohosting the evening and introducing class performances were the school leaders and their teacher Mr Adrian Goldstone:
  • Kindy sang the French song Frere Jaques in both French and English
  • Prep sang the Aussie classic Give Me A Home Among The Gum Trees
  • Year 1 sang the American country song She’ll Be Coming Round The Mountain
  • Year 2/3 sang the Islander song How Far I’ll Go
  • Year 4 sang Jesus Loves the Little Children in English and Africaans 
  • Year 5/6 performed a dance to the American song Different Drums
  • The school choir sang a traditional English song called Scarborough Fair
 
We ended the program with the senior Creative Expression girls representing different countries from around the world and performing Echo — a message of God’s love wherever we go in the world.
 
“The evening went by far too quickly.  Everybody had a fun time.  The students did an amazing job of their performances. They were very high quality acts,” says school chaplain Mrs Nadia Goltz.
