Our performance is rapidly approaching and we are looking forward to all families, grandparents, siblings and friends joining with us to celebrate dance, drama, song and gymnastics.
There will be 3 performances in total - one matinee and two evening performances. Each performance will go straight through with no intermission. Children involved in class productions will not be part of the audience and will not be sitting with their parents either before or after their item, but will be supervised by their teachers in the classrooms. Parents do not have to purchase a ticket for their school aged child if they are in a performance. All classes will have an opportunity to watch the performance at the dress rehearsal the week before.
Each performance will have a potential 217 tickets available, so please don't leave your purchase until just prior to the date as you may find you are too late and tickets have sold out.
Tickets will be on sale from the Front Office from this Wednesday 28 August and will cost the following:
$5.00 per adult
$2.00 per child/school aged student
As part of managing our own resources and being proactive with recycling and our environment we have had some of our senior boys monitoring our daily water usage. This has mainly included water used for toilets, bubblers and taps. The school grounds are watered from the school bore and our own recycled water from our underground tank and are not included in our water rates and usage.
In the four months from 15/11/12 - 18/3/13 we used 820kl which cost the school $2459. This is a lot of money particularly when you consider that this period covered 6 wks of the school holidays.
In the following four month period 18/3/13 - 20/7/13 we used 390kl with a cost of $1166. This is a remarkable difference in both volume of water used and the money paid to ESC. The daily water readings and monitoring by James Burnes, Buster Ware and Rory Shepherdson allowed the school to quickly pick up leaking toilets and dripping taps/bubblers.
Well done to both our boys and Mrs Dent for being active with this monitoring.
