The cast of Guys & Dolls JR have been putting
all their energy and efforts into creating an outstanding performance with lots
of surprises. The stage of Dickinson
Hall has undergone quite a few changes, to transform it into the environment
where the dreams of these young students are realised. The cast has been working very hard to
memorise all of the choreography and songs and some students have been using
their art expertise to help detail the set.
The performances will be in Dickinson Hall on 26, 27 and 28 August, at
7.30 pm. Tickets are selling fast (600 seats out of 900) so to guarantee your
seat Book Now.
Students will have the
opportunity to be involved in raising money next week for the Children's
Medical Research Institute, to help in the fight against genetic diseases. Special thanks must go to Clements House and
their leaders for organising the 'Jeans for Genes' Day to be held Friday, 7
August. All students from ELC to Year 8
are invited to wear some denim to support the cause.
Please note that Monday, 10
August, is a student-free day.

EARLY LEARNING CENTRE
opportunities in the ELC are demonstrated throughout the curriculum in many
ways for Reception and Pre-Prep. It is
not only the act of reading and writing that equates to literacy skills; it is
also the myriad of experiences offered to develop the skill set required to
achieve the outcome of being able to read, sound out and phonetically write
words. I am sure you are seeing evidence
of this in each of the classes, which is certainly an exciting phase in your
are developing skills to physically hold a writing implement and refine their
skills in applying marks and symbols to paper in a uniformed way. Each child is introduced to the concepts of
print through intentional and incidental teaching opportunities, Library classes,
and the effective use of Jolly Phonics and Little Learners Love Literacy
will soon be introduced to the reading program and I encourage all families to
support their children's early attempts as beginner readers. This pace will be at the discretion of your
child's teacher and based on your child's ability to read with fluency, without
error and to comprehend the story.

performance at Castlefield, has demonstrated significant contribution to
Castlefield's community, has demonstrated true Haileybury spirit and whose
family is experiencing continued or sudden financial hardship.

Doran or myself if you would like to know more about what is involved.
