Open Day is just one occasion where our different choirs showcase their talents

John Colet School has a long tradition in teaching children to sing fine music, and Open Day is just one occasion where our different choirs showcase their talents.  From L. van Beethoven to Andrew Lloyd Webber, every item the students performed was a standout.  Like if you agree.

Vice Consul to India 'enchanted' by our Sanskrit speakers

The Vice Consul of India Mr Harjeet Singh Sethi was impressed by our students' performances at our recent Sanskrit recitation finals.

He is pictured below with Primary aged winners Elliot, Felicity and Luke.  Elliot's performance was particularly impressive as he has only been learning Sanskrit for little over a term, having joined John Colet School on our Year 5 Scholarship program.

John Colet Sanskrit Recitation

John Colet Sanskrit Recitation
After Open Day, John Colet School gets ready for our Infants Shakespeare Festival (in early August, held at the school) in earnest.  More on Shakespeare in later blog posts.  In the meantime, we’ve been busy preparing for the Sanskrit Recitation Finals on Thursday 5th June.  We ask the Indian Consul General to attend, and some years he is able to fit it in to his busy schedule, and we are very lucky to have wonderful Sanskrit scholars attend as guest judges. This year Dr Gary Grohmann and Mrs Ineke Blakeman will do the judging.

Fabulous BUNdraiser gets great result

Hot cross bun FUNdraiser

We did it! A fantastic result in raising enough funds (just) for a new industrial rice cooker for the kitchen. Thank you to everyone who placed an order. Over 1000 hot cross buns are being baked exclusively for us next week by the lovely Kim and her team at Forestville Bakery. We are thrilled with the result and hope to have this BUNdraiser added to the calendar as an annual event.

Congratulations and thanks to the T-H family for selling the most buns. They will be receiving a $20 voucher kindly donated by the Forestville Bakery. Enjoy your baked goodies, those donuts looked great and I have heard wonderful things about the sourdough loaves!
