Year 6: Australian Ballet Excursion

Year 6: Australian Ballet Excursion


Location: Arts Centre, Melbourne

During this semester in English, through the art of storytelling the students have been focusing developing their skills by placing greater emphasis on including detailed descriptions of the character’s mannerisms and choices, along with the transitions of these characters create through the setting of the story. We will be attending the Australian Ballet Company’s performance of storytelling of Coppelia. The students will experience ballet’s most playful comedy live on stage in an interactive production of Coppélia created especially for children. We’ll join the character’s Swanilda and Franz as they sneak into Dr Coppelius’ mysterious workshop and discover the secrets of his mechanical dolls.​​

Parent Helpers: 

We would very much appreciate the assistance of some parents on the day so that we can keep our groups to a workable size.  If you would like to help and have a valid “Working with Children Check” certification, which has been registered at the school office,  and have been through the St Peter’s Volunteer Interview process, please indicate below and your child’s teacher will contact you. Due to the responsibility involved in supervising a small group of children, you will not be able to bring along pre schoolers.

Parents assisting with this excursion will be required to attend a compulsory briefing session on Wednesday, 12th December in the Year Six Learning Space at 3.30pm.
