While their peers are enjoying a restful school holidays, Parkview's talented band and dance group are happily giving up some of their hard earned holidays to ensure their role in KROP is well drilled and ready for the gala performing arts extravaganza that will be the jewel in the crown of Education Week, being held at the Griffith Regional Theatre on August 4 & 5.

KROP (Kids Rapt on Performing) is a public schools event hosted annually to showcase the incredibly talented students who attend the region's public schools. It also highlights the opportunities and programs offered exclusively to students who attend public schools in the Leeton area.

Parkview Public School's entry this year is the product of a number of hard working staff and community members who are giving of their holiday time to ensure children have every opportunity to be at their best for their big moment on stage. Staff members Miss Susan Castle and Mr Tim Hislop along with community members Mrs Chrissy Vella, Mr Dominic Vella and Mrs Julie Axtill are all playing key roles in terms of choreographing, private tuition and costume design.

The children will continue rehearsing leading up to the full dress that will be held on Wednesday, July 20th at the Griffith Regional Theatre. Parkview will be joined by peers from Leeton Public School, Leeton High School and a myriad of other public schools from across the Riverina and MIA.

Tickets for the event are selling quickly and can be secured at http://www.griffith.nsw.gov.au/cp_themes/theatre/home.asp

There will be four shows for the public to enjoy. A matinee and evening performance will be held on both Thursday 4th August and Friday 5th August.
