Strathalbyn Christian College Invites Parents for a Play Date at Kindy

Visit-Play-Explore-SCC-Kindy-2018.jpg

Strathalbyn Christian College is throwing the Kindy doors open and inviting parents and children to visit, play and explore.

Strathalbyn Christian College provides a safe and supportive environment for young minds to grow. At the beginning of each new school year, Kindy students attend for half days only, which is ideal for parents and children, allowing them to gradually become more familiar with the school environment. They transition to full days after a few weeks. We are blessed at Strath to have two wonderful Early Childhood Teachers, Mrs Quenby Fabian and Mrs Brenda Pattenden, who really enjoy teaching young students in a play-based environment.

Play based learning capitalises on children’s natural sense of inquiry and discovery through hands-on exploration of the world around them. Our Teachers embed elements of teaching and learning within the play experiences that children are interested in and naturally drawn to – and therefore more likely to stay engaged with.

With limited places at Strath for 2019 and 2020, we would encourage parents with young children under 4 years of age to consider coming along to see what Strath has to offer.

There are three separate Open Days providing different opportunities for families to attend. The first session will be held on Monday 30th July at 11am - 1pm. Refreshments will be provided however we encourage parents to bring a picnic lunch for their children. RSVP is essential for the Open Days. Please email the College admin@scc.wa.edu.au or phone 9938 9100.

Additional Open Days will be held on Monday 27 August and Monday 17 September from 11am - 1pm.

Students bring The Sound of Music to life

3.jpg

The hills of Geraldton will be alive with the sound of music when Students at Strathalbyn Christian College present a stunning new production of The Sound of Music next month. 

The much-loved Rodgers & Hammerstein's musical, which brings to life the classic tale of family, self-discovery and love, offers a great night of family entertainment. 

Set in Austria at the beginning of the second world war, a young woman named Maria doesn't quite fit in at the convent. When the opportunity arises to become a governess for a Navy Captain's seven mischievous children, Mother Abbess believes Maria is the perfect woman for the job. 

Director Tahlia Mathieson said the show is still thrilling audiences more than 50 years after it was first performed. 

"The Strathalbyn students have worked extremely hard to master their singing, dancing and acting roles so the audience can look forward to a terrific performance."

Shows Thursday 14, Friday 15 and Saturday 16 June at 12 Noon and 7pm
