at the Darebin Arts Centre on the corner of Bell Street (across from McDonalds).
Your child should know which night they are in- all siblings are on the same night.
The concert is an exciting time for students which only ever happen once every 3 years! All children are involved in preparing a wonderful performance, complete with costumes and props. Children have been working very hard practising their dances each day. It is expected that all students attend on the night as this is a very important part of the National Curriculum.
Parents, we and the children would love for you to come along to watch them. Tickets are $20 which can be purchased by going down to the Arts Centre directly or online:
You may also pay cash to the office and they can purchase them for you, however you will not be able to choose your seat.
As you may know Foundation students are performing to the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, a 1971 children’s classic, based on the Roald Dahl Story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Most children will be dressed up as Oompa Loompa’s with the costume already organised. However, all that we ask of you is to bring a red school jumper, (the one without a zip), that is clean, on the night as part of the costume; (The school logo will be covered). If your child is playing the roles of Willy Wonka, Charlie or Grandpa Joe another costume has been arranged, please see your classroom teacher for more information if unsure. A note has already gone home asking for a red t-shirt, however this has now been replaced with a red school jumper.
The children will be wearing long white shorts passed the knees, knee high socks, green tinsel wigs, orange face paint, white painted eye brows, and we ask that they wear some sort of black enclosed shoes. This has already been purchased! As the costume is quite elaborate, we ask that you bring your children to the Arts centre on the night at a reasonable time to allow us time to prepare and dress them. Details about what time to bring the children and so on will be sent home and in the school newsletter closer to the date.
We really hope that you and your family can come along and see all the hard work that has been done in preparation for this very special school event. I am sure the children would love to see you there and witness their first experiences on stage!
If you have any questions about the concert please see your classroom teacher!
