CANTERBURY SOUTH PUBLIC SCHOOL GRANDPARENT CONCERT Term: 1
Date: Wednesday 30th March
Welcome everyone to our Grandparent’s and Senior’s Day Concert INTRODUCTION Yeh Rim
for 2011. Thank you for coming. I would like to introduce the school captains and vice captains who will be running today’s concert. The vice captains are Chrisanthea Chrysanthou and Aidan Manowski and the captains are Josh Hronopoulos and myself, Yeh Rim Han. Before we begin we would like to ask the audience to turn off their mobile phones. Thank you.
I would like to acknowledge the Bedigal people who are the traditional custodians of this land. I would also like to pay respect to the Elders both past and present of the Eora Nation and extend that respect to other Aboriginals present.
WELCOME IN MANY LANGUAGES
I will now call on students who are going to give a welcome to our grandparents in a number of languages:
Chrisanthea NATIONAL ANTHEM
Please stand for the National Anthem. Thankyou. Please be seated.
The students and teachers would like to give a warm welcome to our special guests – all of the grandparents and seniors who are able to attend today as well the friends and parents. We are very pleased that so many of you could come today as it gives us an opportunity to show you what we do at school and show you our school. We hold this day to say thank you, to you, our grandparents and seniors, in particular who make us feel so special all year.
We would like to thank all the teachers and the non-teaching staff who have either prepared items or organised the concert and morning tea - without their support we would not be able to prepare this assembly for you.
All classes have prepared items, which show you a variety of our skills. We will now begin Canterbury South’s Grandparent’sSenior’s Concert.
For their very first concert - Kindergarten students are very excited to present a classic pop song entitled “Shout”. This song was recorded by both Johnny O’Keefe and Lulu who were popular way back in the 1960s. We hope you enjoy Kindergarten’s presentation of this song. Please welcome Kindergarten
Thank you Kindergarten Our Year One students are happy to present to you a musical medley which they have learnt as part of Canterbury Southâ€™s music program. This musical medley is comprised of three different groups of characters. They are farmers, drummers and beachgoers. In between digging potatoes and eating fish and chips, we have a group of budding percussionists. We have enjoyed learning these songs and hope you enjoy listening to them. Please welcome Year 1
Now Mrs Sikora, our Principal, would like to address our assembly.
Thank you Mrs Sikora. 2M students will perform a lively dance known as the Heel and Toe Polka. Please welcome 2M
Thank you 2M 2/3S and 3/4M have been learning line dancing as part of their fitness program. They have learnt to shuffle, slide, stomp and hitch. Sit back and enjoy their line dance to the popular song Cotton Eye Joe. Please welcome 2/3S and 3/4M.
Thank you 2/3S and 3/4M
In Music 3/4M have been practising their listening skills and learning to sing in rounds. A round is a musical composition in which two or more voices sing exactly the same melody but with each voice beginning at different times so that different parts of the melody coincide in the different voices, but nevertheless fit harmoniously together. Today they will be performing an acapella version of a Merry-Go-Round followed by an instrumental version. They will also be singing the same song that Year One have performed, ‘Fish and Chips and Vinegar’, but they will take the song one step further and sing it as a round. Please welcome 3/4M
5/6S have been busy movin and groovin and would like to showcase their dance skills. They would like to remind everyone to, “don’t worry, be happy.” Please welcome 5/6S
Each week 5/6R practise their drama skills in creating a role play for the week’s social skill. They have extended these skills to present two plays; “Snow White and the Seven Sumo Wrestlers” and “The Wolf and the Seven Baby Goats.” Firstly, they would like to present, “Snow White and the Seven Sumo Wrestlers.” Please welcome 5/6R.
Thank you on behalf of all the students at Canterbury South for your attendance here today.
As part of our concert today we have three lucky door prizes. The three tickets have been taped under three seats. If you check your seat and find a ticket you will be able to claim your prize.
We would like to invite the grandparents and senior family members as well as our other guests to join us for morning tea under the COLA. Your grandchildren will join you there. Tea and coffee will be served in Mr Robinsonâ€™s room. Please remember, your grandchild must have written permission from their parent for them to go home with you at the end of the morning tea.
