Class 6/7 performed two small plays which they have adapted ( yes they have written them!) from the children’s books Ferdinand (the bull) and Pete the Sheep. These were written and performed particularly for the younger classes at the school.
Kindlehill hosted it’s first ever Summer Soiree. It was a great success and a wonderful way for the community to celebrate the primary school children’s achievements from throughout the year. The Summer Soiree was a joyous event that showcased the high standard of skills the children have developed in many fields over the past year. It was a wonderful way for the community to come together and acknowledge the hard work of the students and teachers.

On Thursday, Kindlehill hosted the Interschool Music Festival. Primary school students from Kindlehill, along with the Blue Mountains Grammar School, St Thomas Aquinas from Springwood, St Canices from Katoomba and Our Lady of the Nativity from Lawson, came together to create a memorable musical festival. Over 100 students and parents came to experience each school’s musical ensemble and the coming together of all schools to perform uplifting, combined choral and orchestra pieces. The festival was a great opportunity for the students to experience being a part of a large orchestra, seeing what children from other schools are learning, and meeting children from other schools. The festival was a resounding success and will the first of an annual event. Please click the link below to view a video of the rehearsal:

The play is based on Bruce Pascoe’s book of the same name. It is both poignant and funny and there were some big acting challenges for students.
