Seussical the Musical
This week our school has been abuzz with performances by our students in Seussical Jr the Musical. After a successful dress rehearsal with our students as the audience, the cast of Seussical performed to broad acclaim Tuesday night, Thursday night and a Friday matinee. This has been a magnificent first for Jinibara. Our students have excelled in their roles, whether on or off the stage, as a team and have been well supported by dedicated staff and enthusiastic parents. There can be no doubt this extravaganza has brought out the best in our school community and ensures we will take on another performing arts project for students in the future.
Public speaking is one of the most rewarding skills an individual can learn. A confident speaker has the ability to persuade, motivate and engage others. Confidence in public speaking correlates highly to success in our working lives.
Each year at Jinibara all students in years 4-6 participate in class public speaking thereby beginning the annual Public Speaking Competition. The process culminated in Junior (4/5) and Senior (6) finalists speaking in front of their peers and teachers here at Jinibara last week. Two students were identified and have had the opportunity to represent our school at the Interschool competition held at Narangba State School. Those students were, Emma Year 5 and Tegjeet Year 6.
Congratulations to both Emma and Tegjeet who competed with distinction. The standard of competition was extremely high.
