Each day in our Prep program, the children engage in a music program that is designed to teach children musical concepts, expose them to a variety of musical genres and inspire a love of singing, movement and all things rhythmic. In addition to this, music is a big part of our day and how we transition our children from activity to activity as well as between spaces.
During one of our music times, the children in our 3 day Prep Program expressed their desire to perform on a‘real stage’. These ideas led to the creation of our Musical Showcase and the children’s desire to perform for their parents and families.
Over the course of a few weeks, the performance took shape and the children worked hard on their routines and polished their performance. Our songs ranged from the Beatles to The Sound of Music and even included a song co-written by one of our educators Mrs Faitele and the Prep 3 day class themselves. Costumes and instruments were designed and made by the children, and encouraged the use of recycled materials.
The Showcase was a huge success and the children were all shining stars! Thank you to all our parents and families that attended.
