On Thursday 1 September and Friday 2 September, our Year 2 girls staged three charming performances of Disney’s Winnie the Pooh.
Over the three shows, the Year 2 girls showed great enthusiasm for their roles and were supported on stage by the Prep and Year 1 girls, while the Years 3 - 4 girls sang in the Choir.
The matinee performances were attended by visiting schools including Sandy Bay Infant School, The Hutchins School and Taroona Primary School who all thoroughly enjoyed the endearing characters and theatrics.
Kathryn Lumsden-Steel, Year 2 Teacher, said “It has been a wonderful experience for all of the girls to be involved in Winnie the Pooh. They have worked so hard and it has been lovely to see their excitement and sense of pride build as they perform on stage.”
The Music Program at Fahan encourages girls to express themselves in varied and original ways. The Early Learning Centre Musical is a wonderful opportunity for the Junior School girls to gain a taste for the performing arts and work together to ensure a successful production.
The following are some thoughts from our Year 2 girls:
“I really liked doing my Tigger dance and Eeyore was really funny too!” said Charlotte Palmer, who played Tigger.
“I loved the finale when we are all together,” said Amelia Steedman, who played the Yellow Narrator.
“My favourite thing was seeing everyone in the audience and when they’re all clapping for you,” said Rosie Salmon, who played Rabbit.
“I loved all the dancing,” said Evie, who played Roo.
“I loved being on the stage and playing a character,” said Maisy Baker, who played Honey Pot.
Congratulations goes to the Year 2 girls and the ELC teachers for their wonderful efforts in staging another successful ELC Musical.
