The vibrant energy of the disco party for Junior School students was nothing short of exciting. The event’s centrepiece was the glitter neon face painting, which added an extra layer of glow to their already colourful outfits. The space was surrounded by artwork on the walls painted by the students in years 4, 5 and 6 in neon glow paint. The UV lighting really made the room look amazing. The dance floor was the pinnacle of the night with the DJ’s energy keeping the students interest the whole time with their structured song list with dance moves to accompany. The students thoroughly enjoyed their school disco! Thank you to all our parent volunteers who assisted on the night, we couldn’t do it without you.
The introduction of pre-show refreshments for parents and families who attended the Winter Concert on Friday 18 August has been met with great success. By offering refreshments and light snacks, parents relaxed and mingled with fellow parents prior to the show, creating a sense of community and shared enthusiasm.
Tuesday 15th August at a special assembly, the OGA Public Speaking Competition semi-finals were held. This year there were four finalists from years 7, 8, 10 and 12.
