SALVATION ARMY CHRISTMAS APPEAL

SALVATION
ARMY CHRISTMAS APPEAL

As the holiday season approaches, we know that  there are many families in the community who will find the extra costs of Christmas a struggle.  The Salvation Army helps thousands of Australian families in need through their Annual Christmas Appeal.

To assist this very worthwhile cause, each year, we have a Christmas Giving Tree at our Year End Shows. We are always amazed at the response of so many families generously donating toys, food and money.  The Salvation Army are always so very grateful for your support.  We are asking our Academy families to participate again in joining the Christmas Appeal. There are three easy donation opportunities available:

NEW TOY APPEAL  

Families can donate a *new toy or gift (unwrapped). Egs: puzzles, games, books, gift vouchers.
FOOD DRIVE     

Families can donate *non-perishable food items such as ring-pull tinned goods, chocolates, biscuits, Christmas food, etc.

CASH DONATION

Donation tins will be on hand at the shows for anyone who would prefer to make a cash donation.

(*Please note: The Salvation Army asks us  for new toys only, to avoid no-name food brands and to ensure expiry dates are well into next year.  For further gift ideas, please visit the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal website:  www.salvationarmy.org.au/schools/christmas)

If you would like to donate an item, please bring it to your child’s Year End show venue (not classes, as it is difficult for our teachers to transport them!) and place it under our ‘Giving Tree.’   Please also share this news with family and friends who are coming to the shows, as we would love for them to be involved!  Thank you for joining us in supporting the Salvos!

Public Performance

Posted by: | Connect with me on Facebook

It was Hillcrest Primary School’s Fete and the dark clouds and thunderstorms were proving the weatherman correct. Nevertheless, we were committed and the kids from the Dianella studio turned up as promised, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, eager to put on a show for a live audience. Kitted up in new costumes specially made for the day, the rains held and the sun’s rays peeked through as everyone took up positions for the first section of the performance .  All went smoothly, with everyone remembering their lines from last term and holding their tone and pitch. despite the urge to shout above the background noise.

Then it was on to the play – Ulysses and the Sirens. With props, costumes and Mother Nature’s contribution of gusty winds! It would have been nice to have microphones suspended at choice locations within the gazebo, but under the circumstances the children’s voice projection, although challenged, was very good.

In the end, we all had a ball, the audience seemed to appreciate the efforts and performance and flyers were handed out to parents and friends around the school. Well done, kids! You were all fabulous!
