Congratulations to all students who competed for trying their best and displaying great skills and tactics. Thank you also to Kate O’Hara for organising this event.

Congratulations Martin Many of you know our Windermere crossing guard Martin. He safely sees many members of our community across the road with a smile and if Richmond have had a win you can sometimes catch him wearing his Tiger socks! We would like acknowledge the fact that Martin has been nominated for ‘School Crossings Victoria Supervisor of the Year’. There were only 165 crossing guards nominated from Victoria with only 3 coming from Bayside. There are approximately 5000 crossing guards in Victoria so to be nominated for this is award is a wonderful achievement. Well done Martin!



HOME – Brighton Beach Primary School’s 2018 Production


There is lots of singing and dancing occurring throughout the school at the moment as students and teachers have started preparing for our bi-annual production. For our Prep and Year 1 students this time is even more exciting as this will be your first

school production. Below we have answered some frequently asked questions to help ease any concerns and to provide you with some information about this very special event.


What is the production ‘Home’ about?


It was the year 1843 when orphans James, Rose and Maggie stumbled upon the first painting of their parents. Fate and a broken broom lead them to the Medley Hallway, where they find hanging on the wall a picture of their parents in the year 1940. Confused as to why the painting was there, the youngest orphan Maggie reaches out to touch the painting. As her hand touches the frame, the orphans are transported to the future where they meet Walt Disney. He explains that their parents had been there not too long ago and they will need to keep travelling through time to catch up with them. Come along on a fun filled, colourful, exciting journey and find out whether the orphans really do find their parents and HOME


 Who wrote this production and where did it come from?

This production ‘Home’ is an original piece as the script has been written by Year 5 and 6 students at Brighton Beach Primary. The ideas for the storyline and music were all developed by the students with assistance from Miss Sally Wickes.

Well done to Zane, Jasper, Elissa, Ruby, Steph, Jarryd, Ella, Zoe, Spencer, Lucy, Elayna, Summer, Chiara and Chloe from Grade 6; and Bailey, Cerys, Darcy, Lucy, Lexi, Alice, Toby and Daniel from Grade 5, who were part of the writing team.


When is the production and what time does the performance start?
Monday 3rd September at 7pm

Where is the production being held?
49 Scenic Boulevard, Monash Uni, Robert Blackwood Hall, Monash University, Clayton.

Is the whole school involved and is it compulsory?


 How can I buy tickets?
Use the link
https://tinyurl.com/y7vc3sr7   or contact Robert Blackwood Hall Box Office on 9905-1111.

What time do students need to be at Robert Blackwood Hall on the night of the performance?
Students should arrive at 6:30pm.


The whole school is participating. Each grade level has their own song and dance act and the main cast are made up of our senior students from Year 5 and 6. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to have the experience of being on the big stage. It happens every second year, alternating the with school Art Show.

What will happen with the students during the production?
When students are not on stage they will be with their classroom teacher either backstage or in the balcony watching the performance.


What time will the production finish?
Approximately 8pm.

Will there be a rehearsal at the venue so students can practise on the stage?
Yes. There will be a rehearsal at the venue on Monday 3rd September, during the day. Students will travel by bus to the venue but will return to be picked up from school at 3:30pm.

Costumes

What will students be wearing?
Costumes will be simple so students can utilise items of clothing they already own. As each year level is representing a different time period their costumes will fit in with this theme. For example Year 4 are representing the 80’s and Year 1 are representing the 50’s. Classroom teachers will be advising parents over the next week about what students will need to wear for their performance.

What happens with costumes on the night of the performance?
Students should arrive at the theatre in their costumes. Once students have performed their item they will remain in their costume for the remainder of the evening. The only students who will require costume changes are those in the main cast.

Will there be a dress rehearsal and when will this take place?
There will be a dress rehearsal at school on Monday 27th August - you will receive more information about this closer to the time.

We hope this information has helped. Should you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact Bev, Kim or Emma at the office.

Congratulations to Zali in Grade 5, whose design has been chosen to advertise the Production. Her design depicts the different stages of the story.
