Students from Parkview Public School lit up the stage for a memorable night of performing arts recently at the highly anticipated showcase event‘Parkview in Lights-Iconic Australia'.
A myriad of performances entertained the massive audience that peaked in excess of 1100 people during finale at the LHS MPC!
The undoubted highlight of the evening was the smiling faces of the children as they performed Australian themed items linked to iconic moments in history iconic personalities and iconic brandings from film, television, radio and the arts.
There was extreme pride in all the children who took a risk and performed on stage with massive benefits for all children in terms of self-confidence and self esteem.
Principal Travis Irvin acknowledged the combined effort of the entire community for the work that had been put in to ensure the performance was such a success. "There have been many, many hours put in by community members who have made costumes, assisted with choreographing, assisted children with rehearsals for their parts in specific performances or simply (and importantly) provided encouragement and reassurance for children that they could do what they did on performance night. We live and work in the most diverse community imaginable and within that community we have a diversly talented student body whose skills and ability are fostered by the most wonderfully supportive community. Thank you to all of you!"
He also acknowledged the efforts of all staff members at the school and thanked the many parents and community members who have extended their thanks to the staff in recent days. "A lot of work goes into all elements of a show like the one we have just completed, and it is a real team effort. School Administrative Staff, School Learning Support Officers and Teachers combine with the community to make the opportunities for our children. What a wonderful partnership we enjoy!" he said.
Mr Irvin also acknowledged the efforts of our P&C who catered for the evening. "They (the P&C) provided a wonderful service for patrons which was greatly appreciated. Thanks also to everyone who supported the P&C's fundraising effort on the night.
Copies of 'Parkview In Lights-Iconic Australia' can be ordered from the Parkview PS Administration Office up until Friday, 18th September.
