One Big Voice (Years 3-5)

On Friday, 18 August, 35 Darlington Campus students will perform with hundreds of other school children at this year’s One Big Voice, WA’s largest children’s choir festival. It’s a chance for our students to enjoy being part of a non-competitive massed choir, involving 80 schools and around four thousand voices in the performance at Perth Arena.

Students will only get one rehearsal with the full choir on performance day – the real work is done in the weekly rehearsals at school, learning 11 set songs and some choreography.

  • Rehearsals are Monday lunchtimes
  • Performance – Friday, 18 August 2017, 6pm in the Perth Arena
  • Contact Alysha McGreevy, Performing Arts Teacher.

Seventy seven students from both campuses are busy rehearsing this year’s entry for  Wakakirri, Australia’s largest performing arts event for schools. The festival invites students to perform a 3-7 minute story using dance, acting and creative movement.

This year our students will perform the story of The Lorax, by Dr Seuss.  Wakakirri aims to teach students about themselves and others through the creation and sharing of stories.

  • Rehearsals are Wednesdays after school at GFC
  • Performance will be between 6-10 August, at the Regal Theatre
