Primary performance was magical
FAMILY and friends of students at Raleigh Public School were treated to a musical performance celebrating cultural diversity recently.
Those attending enjoyed a lovely barbecue before settling in for a program of music and singing, dancing and a play from countries around the world performed by children from all classes.
During the year, students from kindergarten through to grade six are involved in a rich musical program taught by Conservatorium graduate Mrs Melanie Sciortino, who is also the Kindergarten and Year One teacher.
Throughout term four the Kindergarten/Year 1 class has been rehearsing the Japanese play A Piece of Straw.
This year the school choir had the opportunity to perform at the Sydney Opera House alongside other school choirs from across NSW in the Primary Choral Festival. The evening was a great success and a strong community atmosphere present was further highlighted by the final song performed by the whole school We Are One.
Manuela Masochk And Saskia Klop are parents of children at Raleigh Public School.
