    Upcoming Performing Arts Events

    Up Coming Performing Arts Events:

    Third term is known to be a very busy term in the performing arts department. This year is certainly no exception. 

    Each day students are attending the many dance, acting, band and choir rehearsals that are run during our recesses and lunchtimes. Many of our talented students are also rehearsing during lunch times, afterschool and Sunday afternoons for our college production “School of Rock” which will be held in September. 

    There will be more information on this show in the next newsletter. 

    I am always so impressed by the students’ dedication to their music making, acting or dancing and I am very thankful to have so many outstanding performing arts teachers working at our college.

    Public Speaking Students present: ‘Daring Greatly’

    August 15th 7 to 8pm in the Saint Ignatius College Art Gallery.

    The evening’s title is ‘Daring Greatly’ which is a topic inspired by a speech given by the American President, Theodore Roosevelt and more recently a re-created quote by author Brene Brown, who also published her latest best seller titled ‘Daring Greatly’. 

    Brene was inspired to write this novel after being shamed online for being openly vulnerable. Students have been challenged to think about just what ‘Daring Greatly’ is to them.
    This presentation will run for approximately an hour and will conclude with a supper. 
    Performance is an important aspect of Public Speaking, and this evening will be a wonderful opportunity for them to showcase the skills they have acquired over the year.
