Families arrived as the time to start the concert neared, and children excitedly made themselves ready with costumes and a great attitude!
With the cancellation of last year’s concert, parents, students and staff were particularly looking forward to this special evening and it was everything that we had hoped it would be! We were blessed with a beautiful evening and many parents enjoyed a picnic on the lush, green lawns as the sun set on an unseasonably hot day.
More families arrived as the time to start the concert neared, and children excitedly made themselves ready with costumes and a great attitude!
The classes were seated to the thumping of some old favourites and soon the Pre-Primaries delighted us with their energetic (and very cute) disco-dance.
They were followed by the Year 4/5 with a statement about the dangers of too much screen-time!
The Year 1 class then took many of us back to the 80’s with their very bouncy rendition of the Bee Gees much-love hit, “Staying Alive!”
This was followed by Year 5 with the electropop-style “Purple Hat.”
We headed to Africa with the Year 2 class. Special congratulations to them as they did this under the supervision of Mrs Muilenburg and Mrs Solovyova, as Mrs Trubert was still in hospital.
The Year 3 students then took us with them as they went on a Hawaiian holiday.
The Year 3/4s pumped it up as they danced a basketball game!
We finished with a nostalgic AC/DC song, “Thunderstruck” and it was obvious that the Year 6 students have benefitted from the Edu-Dance program over the years as they really stepped up and gave a wonderful performance!
As staff, we loved seeing our students shine in perhaps a different area than usual and it was encouraging to see that so many children showed a talent for movement as they performed. One of the reasons we embrace programs like this is that it enables students to identify their own giftings and work out how these might be used for God’s glory.
We finished the evening with opening the classrooms and it was fantastic to see so many parents, grandparents and friends come and look at the children’s learning.
The community feel, that we value so much, was certainly present on this evening and we had lots of opportunities to chat with each other and praise God for His continued provision for Rehoboth in so many ways. We trust that you felt welcome and part of our Wilson community and that you will also make the most of other events as they arise. We enjoy having our families get together and love to partner with you in the education and growing of your children as they continue their learning journey here at Rehoboth.
