CinderellaAlphashows Cinderella Incursion


When: Tuesday 12th September


Cost: $8 (due 28th August) Permission note attached


Alpha Shows are loved all around the country and are arguably the best theatre-in-education experience. We will be doing a lot of classroom work on the values the show covers as well as using it to inspire great creative writing and new learning about being positive role models. Cinderella will give the children a great story that expands on the fairy-tale to look at the underlying emotions driving the characters and a chance to help Cinderella (and themselves) uncover, express and release the unworthiness emotions that bind her to her mean family. The production of Cinderella models and develops the children’s social and emotional awareness and skills. The children will develop an understanding of self-worth, kindness and expressing feelings.

Language Development

By the time your child starts school, most people should be able to understand most of what your child says. Some articulation errors are still OK for prep students. For information regarding what is appropriate speech and help suggestions to best support your child's speech development, please click here.


Home Reading 

Every Monday your child will bring home 5 reading books in their mailbag. These books are to be read over the course of the week. They do not have to read every book, every night. They may decide to read two books on Monday night, one book Tuesday or three books on Wednesday etc. The only requirement we have is that they read at least one book each night. If you have any questions please see your child’s teacher.
