On the 25th & 16th of June, year 6 & 7 children participated in a kite making workshop with Tony from ‘Bris Fes
Tony an experienced kite
maker of over 20 years worked through, step by step the kite making procedure. The children were rewarded
with an individual, hand made and decorated kite, which they flew on the oval.
What a spectacular sight!

On Thursday 26 June Mayfield students were entertained by David Hamilton’s Puppetmania.
Congo Lady was very beautiful and ‘walked’ up to Sofyan and also sat on Mr Hausler’s lap. The clown really c
ould juggle. Pinocchio was held by Giuseppe and everyone saw his nose grow long. We also saw Punch & Jud
y. These characters were different styles of puppets –hand puppets, string puppets, shadow puppets and marionettes. Every one loved the skeleton puppet because he could fly out over the audience and his body parts coul
d be stretched. The skeleton could also do the moon walk.
Mr Bean wore a blue jacket and while he sang his glasses popped up and his eyes poked out and his eyebrow
s went up.
Audience members were invited to use glove puppets to re-enact ‘Waltzing Matilda’
What a wonderful show! Everyone loved it

By now you should have heard about the Moscars, our awards night celebrating the hard work of all our students in the films created over the past few years. It will be a red carpet event with prizes and entertainment galore. But first, we need to find that entertainment! We are holding auditions at the school for dancers, presenters and a host on Saturday 26 July, from 12 till 2 pm. The dance group rehearsals will run as a PEP programme this semester, while the host and the presenters will need to spend some of their own time rehearsing with us. The main commitments outside of school time will be a daytime rehearsal on Saturday 8 November, and the actual Moscars event on the evening of Friday 21 November. Students must be available on these dates to be a part of this event. Interested students can collect a permission form from us at the OSHC room. Kristie & Clinton
