A Mid-Summer Magic!

On Thursday 6 September 2018, the children of Bold Park community School gave us a beautiful gift … they performed, danced, played, sang, reflected, laughed, squealed and delighted us.

Some comments from our parents say it all:

I am surprised I managed any sleep last night after the adrenaline rush of the production, there was endless conversation in our car and between our boys until some ungodly hour and it was so gorgeous to listen to. We wanted to say the biggest ‘Thank you’ for everything that the teachers and crew did last night to put on such a wonderful show. The willingness of everyone at Bold Park to go above and beyond to give our children the most challenging and enriching experiences is so greatly appreciated. We are so lucky to be a part of a community that values this in the same way we do and we sometimes have to pinch ourselves that we are so blessed. The biggest of thanks to all involved!

I cannot express the absolute delight last night’s performance gave us. Not only was it an amazing production on the night, it was a wonderful display of why our children are at Bold Park and why they love it. The process of staging such a complex production, involving the children in every aspect, every step of the way, seeing them performing their varied roles with expert skills. Embedding learning throughout this process, we were witness to a production which celebrated an incredible range of skills. Costume/prop design and construction, music, cameras, backstage, electronics/multimedia and all of the other aspects of the production involved our children in the creative process. My congratulations to the all of the teaching staff and every student involved for a truly wonderful night.

     

Whilst we had flowers for many, as Rhys said … you just keep thinking of who you may have missed – as it was such a beautiful example of how the magic works at Bold Park Community School. Of course we especially celebrate our Arts Team: Rhys, Jess, Felicity, Danielle, Renata, Leslie, Rory, Kylie and those who also contributed in such a big way to our special evening; Ren, Bonita, CJ, Juanita, Julia and additional love from Trixie (the amazing donkey’s head – which I am stealing for Book Week next year) and Natasha Dowling’s ‘centrepiece’ which will stay with us as a living momento from the evening! We thank all of our parents for ensuring that students were on time at rehearsals throughout the past weeks and braving the Mid-Summer FREEZE to celebrate this wonderful production too!

Most of all, we are of course in awe of our fabulous CHILDREN (the performer, musicians, media specialists, backstage and preparation crews); for whom we hope the evening will stay in their hearts forever! As Renata wrote this morning:

Wow!!! … I couldn’t sleep last night! My heart was exploding with happiness, gratitude and admiration for our amazing team aaaaaand, of course, the students ❤️  It was a gift being … backstage,  seeing the joy and excitement, the beautiful supportive words to each other, it kept our souls warm during this magical cold night.

Thank you, Bold Park!
