BE SURE TO CATCH GULGONG MADS LATEST PRODUCTION.
Gulgong Musical and Dramatic Society's long time members Kath Maloney and Kali Newcomb with rising new star Amy Carpenter are excited to present their latest production Mince Pies, Mulled Wine and Musical Mayhem. This Christmas variety show features a host of local faces, both young and old, some of them stepping out on stage for the very first time!
"With today's hectic lives and super busy schedules, it's getting harder and harder to find people who have enough time to commit to putting on a quality full length theatrical production" said Co-Producer Kath Maloney.
"So instead we devised a format whereby lots of people could be involved, everyone keen to take part would have a chance to shine and we could bring something to the stage that would put a smile on the faces in our local community during pretty tough times."
Be sure not to miss this fantastic night of entertainment, Friday 6th and Saturday, December 7 from 7.30pm at the Prince of Wales Opera House Gulgong.
Tickets are $25 including plenty of festive refreshments - available at the door, online at www.gulgongmads.com.au or over the counter at The Gulgong Post Office and Mudgee Tourist Centre.
GULGONG'S ALL HALLOWS SCHOOL HOLDS THEIR TRANSITION TO KINDERGARTEN FOR PRE SCHOOL CHILDREN
This year the Transition to Kindergarten or KOALA Club (Kids on a Learning Adventure) has taken place over two terms. In Term 3 children were able to visit the school weekly or fortnightly and then this term the children have had four full days at school.
Principal Katrina Isbester explains "The purpose of the transition to kindergarten is to provide school-based learning experience for children in the year before they are able to enroll in Kindergarten, this includes rich experiences designed to promote and improve oral language, and develop literacy, numeracy and social skills."
"The KOALA Club provides an opportunity for parents and pre-school aged students to experience All Hallows Catholic School in a relaxed and engaging manner."
"Another important aspect of the KOALA Club is that the children get to make meaningful connections with members of their class, teachers and students. This allows them to be more comfortable and familiar with the whole school environment and be ready to learn when they start Kindergarten." Katrina said.
