Thinking of teachers and students and changes to learning methods

15 May 2020

With some restrictions being lifted, there's hope of a return to "normal", but while many schools have few students, teachers need to adapt very quickly to different ways of teaching.

We hope teachers will see the benefit of booking online events to inspire their students, whether they're at home or at school.

NSW Schools went "back" yesterday

1 May 2020

Some states have very few students physically at school, others, like WA have larger cohorts.

Don't forget the arts. On SFS we have both digital events, some pre recorded, some live, as well as our usual live offerings.

Arts workers have made concerted efforts to bring their work to you online, to the benefit of you and your students. For once, schools will not be limited by location. 

Check our digital events here - they are recognisable by a hashtag beginning the title.

Green Room Awards Acknowledge Garry Ginivan

14 April 2020

Garry Ginivan, producer and creator of many superb music theatre productions for children and families, including Possum Magic and Wombat Stew, died suddenly in early February. Over a million Australians have seen his work, which toured to every state and territory.

Plans were afoot for an industry celebration of his life work at Her Majesty's in Melbourne in May, which will be rescheduled, but meanwhile it was great to see the Green Room Awards recognising his lifetime contribution to music theatre and, we would add, his contribution to creating and nurturing family audiences for theatre, Australia wide.

Watch the award here. Scroll down to the last video clip on the home page.

8 April 2020

The Victorian Government is asking parents to keep their children at home. They will be taught with online learning. Schools will be open for the children of emergency workers and for children at risk.

How unimaginable would this have seemed, even a month ago?
