Drama night at St Mary’s Scone

Students from St Mary’s Primary School, Scone, showcased their strength and talents during their annual drama night.

With the theme for the evening being Strengths – The Treasures Within Each of Us, the night was filled with a variety of performances involving all students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Throughout the year, students at St Mary’s have been working on the strength of fictional characters from a variety of books as part of the school’s positive education journey.

On the night, Year 3 and 4 students performed the classic tale, The Little Engine That Could.

The performance showed how, when a long train needs to be pulled over a high mountain and all the larger engines refuse to help for various reasons, a smaller engine can take on the job.

By repeating the motto ‘I think I can’ to boost his confidence, the smaller engine succeeds in pulling the train over the mountain.

Year 6N demonstrated the importance of kindness with their re-enactment of the book, Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge.

The story follows Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge who lives next door to a nursing home. When he finds out that his special friend, Nancy Alison Delacourt Cooper, is losing her memory, he shows kindness and sets out to find what a memory is.

Other performances on the night included, Edward the Emu and his curiosity by Kindergarten, The Real Story of the Big Bad Wolf by Year 3 and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Year 6G.
