Curious Wonders – School Performances

This year is usually a concert year, however we are trying  out a new performance focused event over three days (14, 15 & 16 August) called Curious Wonders.

Instead of having one big event, we will have smaller performances across the school at BEPS which means:

  • Students can have more input into their performances
  • Audiences are smaller and we can use spaces within the school
  • We can celebrate the learning that takes place in Curiosita & LC’s

Prep, 1, 2 & 3 Performances:

  • Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th of August during school hours. The LC performance locations (within the school) will be confirmed closer to the date.
  • Tuesday 14 August will be Terra Verde 9:30 – 10:15am and Bicicletta 2:40 to 3:30pm
  • Wednesday 15 August will be Preps 9:30 – 10:15am and Alveare 2.40-3.30pm

4, 5 & 6 Performances:

  • 456 Performances will take place over two evenings on Tuesday 14th & Thursday 16th of August from
  • Students will be allocated one evening to perform and this information will be
    confirmed and sent out in the coming weeks.

Tell Me A Story: Arts & Literacy Festival

This Book Week (August 21–25), students at Brunswick East Primary School (BEPS) are learning all about what it means to tell a good story, and their experiences will stretch well beyond the humble book.

The week-long, whole-school festival champions literacy learning in the 21st century and features some of Victoria’s finest artists, musicians, community members, authors and illustrators, including The Itchy Scabs, the punk rock band playing “bad music for good children”; Alex Miles, author of the Olive Black and Zac Power book series; Gunditjmara elder Uncle Trevor Gallagher; and Footscray-based not-for-profit literacy centre, 100 Story Building, to name just a few.

For Brunswick East Primary School staff, good learning is all about engagement and community. “A good story has the power to bring us all together,” says literacy teacher and member of the festival organising committee, Mel Fulton. “For us, the week is a great opportunity for the kids to talk about their reading, writing and artistic projects with real-world writers and artists. When kids can see the purpose of something, and understand the possibilities for it, that’s when they really push themselves to make something special.”

Throughout the week, children will engage in workshops on subjects as diverse as idea-generating, comic book making, book binding, debating, performance, ochre painting, book publishing, oral storytelling, interviewing and poetry.

Between 5 and 7 pm on Thursday August 24, the school will be open to parents, carers and community members to come along and share in the learning. The school choirs will be performing, and members of the senior school will be performing a version of Macbeth from 6 pm. Written and artistic works produced by students throughout the term will also be on display in the learning spaces, and students and parents alike are invited to participate in an ‘open mic’ storytelling experience. Local book shop The Little Bookroom will be running a book stall featuring authors and illustrators performing at the festival.

On Friday August 25th, children will dress up as their favourite storybook character to raise money for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre. The Itchy Scabs will close the festival with a live rock n roll performance on Friday afternoon. The Little Bookroom will also be announcing the winners of a whole-school short story competition early the following week.
