This weekend the WinterWild Festival starts in Apollo Bay.

Usually an annual festival, of course it was cancelled in 2020, then in 2021, it was sold out but was cancelled a week before it started. This year - fingers crossed. They've got the most incredible events. 

Chookas to them!

Online Shows Still A Great Option

9 August 2022

Schools might choose to book an online show because

1. They are out of a main city or town

2. They don't have many students

3. Cost might be a factor - online shows are usually cheaper

4. The show they're interested in doesn't tour to their state.

This last was the reason a Sydney school, Hornsby North PS, booked Tim Ellis' A Visit to the Laneway Theatre'. The live shows are only available in Victoria.

This is what they said about it

"Our school is based in Sydney and we were able to enjoy a Zoom presentation by Tim Ellis. The students were totally engaged throughout the whole show and loved the way they were shown a few of the magic trick reveals. Would thoroughly recommend this incursion to any school. Tim was an excellent communicator as far as bookings were concerned and provided an extra bonus of link to some of the tricks, so that they can be shared at home."

Online shows on SFS are designated by a # at the start of their title.

It's been so heartening to see the huge number of bookings for Book Week shows over the last few months.

Teachers are booking both live and virtual shows. Having virtual options is one of the rare advantages of the pandemic. 

Even more exciting, some schools are already booking for book week 2023! Making bookings way ahead used to be the norm. Maybe confidence is slowly returning to us all.

NAIDOC Week Ends

10 July 2022

What a pity NAIDOC Week fell in the school holidays in some states this year. It's an important one for schools to celebrate and investigate, but it makes it hard when it's not in school term time.
