WELCOME TO TERM 3 to everyone from the Eastern Suburbs! Where did Term 2 go?? Term 2 was amazing and all our classes did so well in their Parent Presentation Days. We even had parents joining in with an Introductory Activity as part of the presentation! Now we know where all our students get their enthusiasm from, the parents did such a wonderful job at their very first drama activity, congratulations! Here are a few photos of how much fun we had last term:

We have also had a wonderful start to Term 3 with lots of new families joining us and to all our existing students a BIG THANK YOU for making all our new students feel part of our class so quickly, I am so proud of you all. 🙂

We have really enjoyed our Improvisations this term and have already been to the Zoo with the Lower Primary classes! Upper Primary students have been working on prop skills and mini-scripts, which will give us solid grounding towards our Term 4 Productions which we look forward to performing for you at the end of the year.

Here is Forrestfield Lower looking the part in their zoo animal costumes:

Every second week this term we are having a “themed” lesson where the students are able to dress up for their Drama Class. (See our previous posts for the list if you are unsure.)

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to our carers, parents and students who always amaze me with their creativity and attention to detail with dress-ups.

Here we have some students from our Quinns Lower Primary class and our Greenwood Kindy class, looking great in their ‘dress-ups’.

As Term 3 draws to a close we have a lot of “Show Time” time to look forward to.

This week in class we are asking our Lower and Upper Primary Classes to dress up in all things “Royal Show”. Wigs, Super Heroes, hats or anything you like!

Next week is the Royal Show and I have such fond memories of attending as a child and I think I will enjoy it just as much now watching my kids soak up the atmosphere and getting amongst it!

Next term we  present our Academy Shows and I am really looking forward to a fun filled term that gives all of our students anopportunity to display the skills they have learnt.

Don’t forget to return your Yellow Re-Enrolment Forms to secure your place for Term 4.

Have a great break and I will see you in class soon!

A Very “Chilly” Welcome to Term 3

I would like to extend a very “Warm Welcome” (which seems ironic considering the weather we have been experiencing lately) to all of the new families who have joined The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy this term. I’m sure you will agree that you have entered into an activity that will not only be beneficial for your child’s development, but will also provide them with a lot of enjoyment!

Term 3 is a fun filled term with lots of dress up opportunities. The excitement continue to build as toward the end of the term we start to give hints as to what our End of Year Presentations will be about. Stay tuned!

If you have any questions about any aspects of our programme, please do not hesitate to approach your Principal or speak to your child’s teacher. We are very happy to discuss all aspects of our wonderful programme.

See you in class soon!

The Knights of the Round Table were present at our Kallaroo Upper Primary Class this week.

We took a step back in time this week and through our play, visited the historical time of King Arthur and his Knights.  Lots of students made the effort to dress up and this really helped to create a fantastic atmosphere. There were plenty of damsels in distress that were rescued by our brave knights, Sir Galahad and Sir Lancelot.

Some students took their characters even further by continuing to develop them in thier Snippets section (where the children make up their own short scene, with a  partner).

I was very impressed with the student’s willingness to grasp a different time period and really try to become those different characters.

It was an amazing lesson and was so much fun!
