Rosebank Public School
I am Rosebank, hear me ROAR! Our term ended with a flurry of excitement, as Rosebank students took to the stage to present our Whole School Musical, The Lion King. Our children sang and danced to a very full house, really hamming it up and revelling in the audience’s obvious enjoyment of their talents. There were so many moments of triumph, as veteran performers did their customary stellar job and new stars were born.
And the reviews are in....
“Bedazzling! The brightness of the kids’ faces. They really blossomed!”
Sri (Sai and Tavi’s Dad)
“It was good. A lot of people had fun. No-one actually really needed any help with their lines.”
Ederyn (Year 3)
“They just had so much fun. The kids really enjoyed it. They had ownership of it. They all had their little part.”
Barb (Ederyn’s Mum)
Special thanks to all those mums and dads who sewed costumes, heard lines, painted faces and soothed worries, it was a triumph of community spirit.
Speaking of stars, one of our Senior students recently made the news. Lana was nominated for a Fred Hollows Humanity Award in recognition of her care and compassion for others. Lana travelled to Sydney, where the Premier and Gabi Hollows presented her with her award. Our local member, Thomas George, popped in to add his congratulations. We’re so very proud of you, Lana.
And, as if that wasn’t enough, on the second last day of term our soccer squad competed in the Championships of the NSW Primary Schools Sports Association’s Small Schools Soccer Competition. Our team travelled to Sydney, where they competed against other regional champions for the ultimate prize. We came in Third and left in high spirits after a day of fun and friendship on the field. Happy Holidays Everyone!
