On the 22nd May, Tom and his friend, Moz, visited Joondalup Schools. Moz came to Joondalup Schools to look for some new tunes and music to power his planet, Musicitopia, which was slowly running out of its only natural resource, Music. Together, Tom and Moz time travelled through history to explore different genres and styles of Music. First they looked at the Classical era, exploring different instruments of the orchestra. From there, they looked at Jazz, Rock, Hip hop and finished on some World Music from India and the fascinating guitar-like instrument, the Sitar. With the help of some lucky Joondalup students, Moz could name and explain a range of different styles of Music and when it was time for him to leave, he had a lot of music knowledge and skills to take with him. It was a fun and educational visit with Tom and Moz, that had the students laughing and engaged from start to finish!
On Friday 13th April, the ANZAC Commemorative Ceremony was once again an outstanding tribute to the men and women who founded the ANZAC tradition over 100 years ago on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey and then on the Western Front in Europe. It was great to see so many residents from Brightwater, parents and relatives attending the ceremony. Having the commemorative ceremony at the end of the day allowed more parents to attend. Your support for the ANZAC tradition and the school is greatly valued. I would like to thank Ms Gawned, Miss O’Connor, Mrs Butler, the choir, the Year 6 students and everyone who assisted in making the ceremony such a memorable experience.
