By week’s end, our talented Year 9 Pantomime students will have presented nine separate performances of “Peter Pan” to more than 1,000 children from all over the Lower Eyre Peninsula. We have been thrilled that our Panto has even gone ahead, with COVID restrictions looking quite threatening at one point; this excitement has transferred onto the stage.
From the outset, we put our own twist on this familiar tale of the boy who never wanted to grow up, bringing the story into the 21st century. The fifty Panto students have spent the semester preparing, painting, decorating, rehearsing and crossing their fingers that it would all go ahead, and they have done a fantastic job!
Many thanks need to go to Mr Stephen Campbell, Ms Creena Scholz, Mrs Annette Kelson, Sean Proude, Casey Peters, Quinn Dutschke, all of our SSO staff, Ms Hanna Minchin, Year 10 students who filmed the performances, and any others who have helped in any way.
We have had a brilliant time! “Safe journey!”
