School musical: The Little Mermaid

I think we can very confidently say that our production of ‘The Little Mermaid’ was a hit! It was the culmination of many months of hard work, and as a school community we couldn’t be prouder.

When you set out to put on a show like this you are not always 100% certain of the outcome. The Arts is about a lot of things – connection, engagement, collaboration, teamwork, confidence, pride and fun but most importantly it is an opportunity to build community and Thursday night was a fine example of that.

Productions such as this one don’t just manifest out of thin air, and the children, teachers and our amazing team of production volunteers, worked with great energy and enthusiasm over the past two terms to put on the wonderful show you saw. We are so lucky at St Columba’s, to have so many talented, creative and skilled people in our community who so generously give of their time to help us to put this show on the stage. On behalf of all the children, I would like to say thank you to all the amazingly talented people who have worked with us – thank you for sharing not only your gifts with us but also your love and passion for the Arts.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank CBC St Kilda for allowing us to use their theatre. Their generosity went above and beyond and we are truly grateful for this.

I can’t reiterate just how much we have gained from this experience. It has been an honour and a privilege to work with our community to bring this show to life. The Arts we know contribute significantly to your child’s full flourishing at school and they are alive and well at St Columba’s.
