GINGIN District High School students showed their talent and highlighted the dedication of their teachers when they performed for family and friends on Thursday, December 9.

Principal Kevin Brady said he was very proud of the students’ performances in the end of year concert.

Mr Brady said parents had given the school a lot of positive feedback about the concert.

“All of our primary students were on stage, performing for their parents and the community,” he said.

“The teachers chose the theme of The Movies, and they created the acts and the choreography with the children during the course of Term 4.

“The evening was held at the Gingin Sound Shell which is a fantastic community resource – i the open air, with the Gingin Brook as a back drop, we had an entertaining evening.”

The performances started with four-year-old students from kindergarten singing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer while wearing reindeer noses and ears.

Every class presented two or three items including items from movies such as Grease, The Lion King and Shrek.

The Year 5 and Year 6 students ended their performance with some students cartwheeling and flipping across the stage showing the audience their acrobatic skills.

As a finale all the students came onto the stage to sing Jingle Bells and We Wish You a Merry Christmas.

Concert coordinator Lesley Stoffels said all the teachers worked hard with their classes to develop their acts.

“A lot of time was spent learning the lyrics, organising the music and making sure the presentation was as good as it could be,’’ she said.
