Let the Show Commence!

Posted by: | Connect with me on Facebook

Students in our Upper Primary classes this week are participating in an improvisation that takes them back stage before a school production. Amongst the nerves, last minute rehearsals, lost costumes and general excitement the show must go on!

Here, some students from our Duncraig Upper Primary class are preparing back stage. Will the show be ready to go on stage? Will all  of the costumes be finished in time?  Of course they will!

It was a great success! See you in class soon.

Rehearsals have commenced and the excitement is building. All of our classes are in the process of learning lines, singing songs and creating characters for our end of year performances.

We will have a newsletter with all of the relevant information within the next week or so but please remember that our shows are held over the weekend of the 15th and 16th December at St Stephens School Theatre, Duncraig.

We are all so excited about Term 4 and are looking forward to a fun filled term.

See you all in class soon!


A Very “Chilly” Welcome to Term 3

Posted by: | Connect with me on Facebook

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!

I would like to extend a BIG THANK YOU to all of those family members and friends who came along and supported our students during the recent Parent Days. Every presentation was fantastic and showcased what confident and talented students we have.


We are all really looking forward to a fun filled Term 3!

Our first Parent Presentation was held at Banksia Grove on Saturday and it was a fantastic morning. Last night it was our Duncraig Studios turn to “show off” and again it was a fun and exciting time for all involved. I am very proud of the achievements all of our students have made this term and the growth in dramatic ability and confidence was evident for all to see.

I would like to thank all of our parents for the wonderful work they do with costumes. Thanks mums, dads, grandparents or whomever is helping with the costumes. They all look fantastic!
