On Friday, 10 and Saturday 11 June our musical Aladdin Junior was performed at the Redcliffe Arts Centre.  At three sell out performances, all our students dazzled and entertained the audience with their talent and sheer persistence.

Musicals don’t just happen. They take hours of behind the scenes coordination and organization.  Much of the paperwork and planning is done on the ‘off musical years’ but the costume and set making, auditioning and rehearsing of students and the logistic planning is done in the six months leading up to the musical.  At Grace, this is done with much team work and humour with all teachers and other staff spending time helping out.

This year at the musical, I announced to the audiences that due to the success of our Performing Arts Co-curricular program, I nominated it in the Australian Excellence Awards.  I am pleased to announce to our entire school community that it has become a silver medal award winner and finalist in these awards.  The winners will be announced on 12 August so I will let you know how it goes there.

I would like to thank so many staff and parents who have helped out for our musical this year.  I don’t want to mention them by name because I am sure I will leave someone out.  At the end of the day, to watch our students perform at such a high level and to have so much fun doing so is a credit to a team of people who are willing to go the extra mile for the students in our care.  Well done to everyone involved.


LEARNING EXPO & MARKET FAIR

The last two mornings, the students had fun showing off their learning from this term. Tuesday the students visited the year 6 student’s businesses. Today, families visited all grades.

Thank you to all the families who could make it. Here is a few photos for those who were unable to visit.

ABOUT PLAYGROUP

Kicking off in 2022 we were very excited to have our playgroup up and running.

With small group sizes, a large classroom and play areas for our little ones, playgroup is able to go ahead. There are so many families out there wanting to connect and enjoy a fun activity with their child and other Mums, Dads and Carers so we are very happy that our playgroup can be offered for you. These class sessions are a great way to connect with your child and other families. Each week the children will be engaging in fun and exciting music and activities that are specifically designed to stimulate their senses through movement and music, crafts and arts and sensory play.

 

_________________________________________________________________________________________________


We are very excited to introduce to you the amazing educator who will be running the sensory music and movement playgroup sessions each week!! Karlien has a wealth of experience working with young children. She previously ran her own family daycare and after having her two beautiful children she looked for something she could do that would work with her young family but still be something she loved.

Karlien runs the Maggie Moo Music North Brisbane sessions. She fell in love with the music and sensory classes and absolutely loves hosting these for families. They are such a great way to connect with not only your child, but also other Mums, Dads, Carers, Grandparents etc.
We can’t wait for you to meet Karlien and come sing some songs and dance with us!

We also have Book Club that happens roughly every 4-5 weeks. Order forms will be sent to the classrooms and the ordering is done via LOOP on the Scholastic website and will be sent to the school for collection.  I’ll send out reminders just before ordering finalises to make it easier for you to remember to get your order in.

Book Fair will be happening later on this year with a chance to come to the library to purchase your special books, always great for birthday or Christmas gifts.

Book WeekCharacter dress up day is planned for 24th August. The theme this year is all about Dreaming with Eyes Open.  We will have fun with dressing up and special activities, so I hope all the kids will start to think about the costumes they would like to wear.  More information on this very special time will be coming soon.

Finally you can contact me via email on  library@glps.qld.edu.au for any concerns with overdue books or any other questions you may have.


If you have any questions throughout the year, you can email Peta at library@glps.qld.edu.au
