Out and About......

 

 

It has been a busy two weeks at Killester. We commenced with the Arts Tech Exhibition on Friday night and then moved to the annual Open Day on Sunday. The weather was kind and the crowds exceeded expectations. This is always a day that showcases the many opportunities that the girls at Killester can avail themselves of and also the many talents of the students across so many fields. There was music, cooking, technology activities, science experiments, artworks, interactive IT and Maths displays, English and Humanities and LOTE displays of work and resources, a BBQ and animal farm. There was the chance to try the Human Powered Vehicles, plus tours and show bags.

CDG Youth and Family Services - Performers Wanted

My name is Josh and I work at the City of Greater Dandenong Youth and Family Services.  Youth and Family Services often run stage on local Festivals and Events. The stage provide young people opportunity to showcase their skills and to build their performing portfolio. Young people will be provided with small amount of reimbursement for their time and skills. We pay $10 per performance for new performers.  We are looking for performers for our Dandy Show event stage. This is taking place on Saturday November 9 from 5pm till 8.30pm.  The stage size is 6M X 4M so dancers will need to plan their act accordingly.  We are particularly interested in young people who can  Sing (solo / duo)

  • Dance
  • Rap
  • Spoken word or poetry
  • Magic
  • Stand-up comedy.

If you have any students who you think would benefit from this opportunity, I have attached the expression of interest form.  Student will need to fill in this expression of interest and send a short video of a sample of their act.  They could also contact us to arrange a meeting if they would like to perform directly in front of us.  We look forward to receiving expression of interest from you.  Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need any further information.
