Accidental Theatre returns! Here’s how to get involved…

Was your May miserable last year? Did your spring not sparkle? Was it because you missed the chance to witness a small-scale, intimate, unpredictable, comically outrageous theatre show? Fear not! Accidental Theatre is back!

Well, it’s only back if you want to take part. A theatre company needs actors, and we are looking for actors right now. Are you in Grade 8 to 11? Are you an actor? Have you already performed in school productions or elsewhere? Or are you in the habit of watching theatre shows thinking ‘I could do that’? Are you able to commit to Monday and Thursday after-school rehearsal times, and a performance in mid-May? Would you show up faithfully with lines learned and energy to spare? 
If so, see Mr.Brown in the Black Box or Mr.Hammond in D214 to find out what it’s all about. Auditions will be held week beginning 21st January.

Assembly Meeting

Could student council members, who will be presenting during Friday’s assembly, please come for a short meeting at lunch today in my office (D248). Thank you.

Weekly Bulletin – reminder on how to submit/deadlines etc

The bulletin is published mid afternoon on Fridays on the website and via Veracross to all parents and staff. It is a public document and checked by Laurie each week.

The deadline for submission is 12 noon on Wednesdays.

There are two options : Weekly Bulletin and Banner/Poster. Instructions on each are contained in the drop down box.
The poster part relates to the information that is loaded on the hi-tec screen in the Centre Foyer near the Reception Counter. All other items are displayed throughout the week on the screen next to the PTA Shop.

Recycling, re-using, re-purposing: Personal Project Clothes Collection

Do you have any old t-shirts or other clothes you’re no longer using?

If so, please donate them to my Personal Project. I will be re-purposing the clothes and creating bags for people to use instead of plastic ones. These bags can then be used for shopping, taking to the beach or any other purpose!

There will be a labelled box in the Centre foyer all week until Friday 11th January for you to donate your t-shirts or other clothes.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks very much!
