The Peasant Prince

On Friday the OC participated in a drama workshop with teaching artist Bali Padda from Monkey Baa Theatre Company who are responsible for the Peasant Prince performance we will be seeing this week. We had a great time taking part in games and role-play drama activities. Thank you to Bali for visiting us!

Thinkfest

-----------------------
Today our OC attended an excursion to Jewells Public School to participate in Thinkfest.

Thinkfest is a creative problem solving competition for Opportunity Classes from all over the Hunter region. Our Thinkfest areas for investigation included sophisticated enquiries in the areas of English, Maths, Science and Visual arts. Students worked in groups to produce a script, dramatic skit, visual process diary, a key prop and backdrop.

Our students have worked tirelessly over the past few weeks preparing for Thinkfest and performed wonderfully today at the competition. Well done to our Maths group who were awarded best backdrop and our English group for best script solution.

A big thank you to Miss Beker, Mrs Sheehan and Mrs Cooper for all their hard work and help with Thinkfest!
