Indonesian was introduced to SSP in 2017 and below are some simple greetings and words you might want to learn and use at home:
Selamat Pagi Good morning
Terima kasih Thank you
Apa kabar? How are you?
Baik-baik saja I am fine.
Sama Sama You are welcome.
Next week, on Thursday 30 August, we have our annual Father’s Day Mass at 7.15am in the Church, followed by breakfast in the Hall. We hope lots of dads, or significant males, can join us for these celebrations.
To assist with catering, those wishing to attend the breakfast need to let us know how many people will be attending from their family. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Disney’s The Little Mermaid Junior production came to life at Prendiville College’s Redmond Theatre on 4 and 5 August 2018. Our Year 5/6 musical theatre students, along with our Year 4 choral students, performed to an audience of 900 people across three shows.
The students first auditioned late in Term 1 and have rehearsed most Wednesday afternoons with Mrs Templeton, Mrs Oliver and some staff and parents who have helped out along the way.
The community spirit of SSP was on display with the props and costumes which were made by a huge team of people under the guidance and visual creativeness of Mrs Templeton during many meetings, busy bee sessions and rehearsals. The songs were learnt and worked on during choir sessions with Mrs Templeton and Mrs Oliver and dance choreography was added to enhance the overall experience. Thanks to the Performing Arts committee members who assisted this year it was great to have the help.
This year we were assisted by Prendiville College’s Visual Arts teacher, Michelle Bryant, and Media Department co-ordinator, Chris Greenwood. A team of 12 PCC students stayed after school during Terms 2 and 3 to create our canvas photo backdrop for the foyer. We also had five students attend each rehearsal and gain experience in “putting on a theatre production”.
We thank them all very much and love the support we get from PCC.
The digital backdrops were created by Mrs Templeton with the expertise of animation artist, Linley Tadman.
DVDs and photos are now on order. The students were sent an order form last week. Both casts will be on the same DVD with a snap shot of photos which were also taken by two Year 10 PCC students. The cost of the DVD is $20.00. DVDs will be delivered by the end of term.
All costumes need to be returned ASAP if they were part of our SSP collection used as a base and or part of our purchased material please.
Once again a very big congratulations to the 102 students who took part in the production, it was a wonderful experience for all. These students just like many who have come before them have been given a taste of musical theatre and have developed a passion for The Arts.
I hope I have been able to share my love of Theatre, song and dance to all of these students and have allowed each of them to discover something about themselves that they didn’t know before partaking in this adventure. They were a shy group to begin with but certainly grew into confident performers who loved every minute.
Reach for the stars always and discover new things!!!
I hope you enjoy the photo gallery of The Little Mermaid.
A copy of the programme is also here for you to keep - The Little Mermaid Programme
Thank you - Mrs Templeton.
NAPLAN Online School Readiness Test
Here at SSP we are NAPLAN online ready for 2019 with teachers receiving training in recent weeks. This initiative really has emphasized for us the importance of students getting exposure to technology through access to their own device. Don’t forget Mrs Ashlee Dale will be presenting at our next FSSP General Meeting after Junior Assembly next week at 9.15am in the Staffroom. All parents are welcome to join us and feel free to ask Ash some questions on where this is all heading at SSP.
This week, Year 3 and 5 students will be participating in a NAPLAN online School Readiness Test (SRT). The SRT must be conducted by all schools this year in preparation for NAPLAN online in 2019. No results are given to students for these tests, it is purely a test of our school IT network and our capabilities to have almost 180 students completing online tests at the same time.Read Less
