      Glenealy School Fair

      2023 Welcomed back the Glenealy School Fair, and what an amazing event it turned out to be! It was wonderful to see so many of the Glenealy families there having fun and making the most of the food, games and activities available. It was also fantastic to see so much support from our community, whether you helped organise, volunteered on the day, donated toys, books, baking or food, the fair would not have been possible without your involvement. Thank you!

          Celebrating Hanukkah at Glenealy School

          Our team of Parent Volunteers have been working with the students to bring some festive Hanukkah fun during lunchtimes. Students have been able to decorate dreidels, play the dreidel game and also play the candle in the bottle game. 

          We have seen presentations in classrooms from some of our students to help us learn more about Hanukkah.

          Special thanks to our Parent Volunteers for organising and running the Hanukkah events this week.

                “Bringing our Community Together  to Celebrate Mid Autumn Festival”

                We were thrilled to have been able to hold our Mid-Autumn Festival event and bring our families and community together to start the new academic year in a safe and socially distanced way.

                Concept note: Our School, Our Canvas

                The Mid Autumn Festival Art Installation Walkthrough was a collaboration between all staff and children, and our community as a whole. 

                Taking inspiration from a variety of galleries and events which Glenealy School staff have attended, staff and students have worked together to realise our vision; Our School, Our Canvas.

                Our School Our Canvas: inspired by Dan Flavin’s Constructed Light, the dialogue between art and architecture.

                Sound Installation

                Year 5 and 6 have worked with music sequencing software to create musical
                soundscape pieces that have been woven together to create a soundtrack for our Mid Autumn Festival.
                There is almost 40 minutes of music that has been created by the students. The works swing from the eclectic, to jazz, to rock, to vocal, to electric styles.
                The students' pieces are infused with recordings of the story of Mid Autumn
                Festival spoken in Mandarin and sporadically interspersed with Year 3 students wishing us a Happy Mid Autumn Festival.
