Recent Gig – More Singing in the Rain!

Thanks heaps to those of you who braved the weather at Springfest last month to come and see the concert. I had a ball preparing and performing with the students from Urquhart Park PS, and they all seemed to enjoy themselves too! some of the new words they wrote and/or found for Humpty Dumpty were particularly amusing.

Importantly, the Uniting Way program picked up quite a few donations and subscribers to their program (which aims at providing free books to Ballarat’s young children).

The folks from the school included this photo and brief run down about our Springfest performance in their school newsletter:

“Urquhart Park Students from Grades Prep to Six performed at SpringFest to launch The Uniting Way’s Ballarat Reads with Earl Leonard. Congratulations to all our singers – you did a wonderful job!  A big thank you to the many parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, cousins and family friends who attended to lend support to our students.”

In other news, I’ve finished my teaching rounds! Thanks heaps to Creswick Ps for having me (and especially for letting me run the grade 3/4 assembly item for the term. We sung `We Will Rock You’. It was pretty awesome). I had a great time with a very considerate mentor teacher and a fun bunch of enthusiastic students. And my `Tell Stories’ literacy/numeracy role-playing game/activity worked really well (although I’ve since thought of ways I can improve it).

If you know of any schools in the district needing a music and/or generalist teacher, let me know (and let them know about me!)

Thanks again for reading, and see you soon 🙂
