Listening Place in Adelaide

3 April 2016

Another interesting project from CARCLEW in Adelaide, The Third Place listening sessions, celebrating National Youth Week.  The idea being a "third place" is neutral territory, so a good place for young people to get together.

Brienna Macnish, Carclew's artist in residence, has created an audio theatre work based on recorded interviews with young people who hang out at Ramsay Place.

When:  9 - 16 April, 2pm - 5pm daily,  Ramsay Place, Noarlunga Centre

What: Listen to the interviews ( about 20 mins) using Silent Disco headsets

Cost: Free

The Story All Australian Kids Should Know

3 April 2016

SFS had the pleasure of seeing John Arbuckle from Hats Productions perform his one man show  THE STORY OF THE ROYAL FLYING DOCTOR SERVICE at Caulfield Grammar recently. 

"We've had John back every year for the last three years, to perform different shows for Yr 5 and Yr 7. It's greatly anticipated by the teachers because they know their students will really be engaged" L Barton. Teacher Caulfield Grammar

We loved it and so did the student and teacher audience. John is very clever in his presentation. Before the show, he meets with 10 selected students who perform additional roles ( there are alot of people in this story!). Even some of the teachers get a line.

Aussie School Holidays Mismatch

23 March 2016

The state school systems cope differently with an early Easter . Tomorrow we have Queensland and Victoria beginning their Term 1 holidays. The rest of the country finishes Term 1 on April 1 (NT) , April 8 (most) or April 15 (SA).

17 March 2016

Last year the previous Prime Minister made some remarks on St Pat's day about the Irish that were quite insulting. Let's hope the current encumbant speaks with more diplomacy and intelligence.
