The school was extremely successful in applying for the Arts Centre First Call Fund and qualified for 100% coverage of the cost of the tickets. The students were given a wonderful opportunity to be part of an audience at the Arts Centre Melbourne and see The Steadfast Tin Soldier by Germany’s Thalias Kompagnon (Based on the story of Hans Christian Anderson).
They met the artist Joachim Torbahn (performer/puppeteer/painter)
The students also visited the National Gallery and discovered some of the wonderful art works on exhibition.
This excursion provided our children with opportunities to discover how art tells a story and be part of live performance.
Enjoy some of the photos taken on the day!
