The clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your

Hi all,
Now that we are almost at the end of Term 1 of the
first year of our music residency at Aldinga Beach B-7
School, Im happy to give you a little update about what
has been rolled out.
The students did come and try days at the end of
last year and the beginning of this year, to identify this
years students who would participate in group guitar
lessons and percussion ensembles. From those students, 4
groups of 6 students were selected to receive group guitar
lessons and 4 groups of 25 students were selected to
participate in percussion ensembles. These students have
been receiving weekly lessons throughout term 1 by
Musica Viva guitar tutor, Mike Bevan and percussion
tutor, Fabian Hevia. The students are working towards a
performance at the end of Term 2. Once we have a date, I
will forward you an invitation to attend.
The school has received new guitars and a range of
new percussion instruments and for most of the guitar
students, this is the first time they have been allowed to
take an instrument home to practice, so we look forward
to hearing their musicianship develop.
We have also delivered a professional development
course to the entire staff Introduction to Primary
Classroom Music. Feedback from the staff about the
course was glowing with the Principal, Mel Justice
reporting that staff had a great time and learned an
enormous amount, as the presenter made them feel very
at ease, where they would normally be scared of
participating in musical activities. We return twice more
this year to deliver further professional development for
the staff.
Plans are now in place for preparatory activities in
the classroom for Musica Viva group The World
According to James who will be visiting the school in
Term 4. Work will be done on improvisation in the
classroom, in the theme of jazz that the group will bring
to the school. Local multi-instrumentalist and award
winning artist Adam Page will visit the school in Term 3
to work with staff on improvisation and spontaneous
composition. This workshop will occur at the school
from3.20 to 4.50 pm on Tuesday 26 September and you
would be welcome to attend if you wish.
I will send you an invitation to attend the
performance by The World According to James in
Term 4, closer to the time. In the meantime, please

I wish you and your families a very happy and safe

A Lock Of Hair.

As I trudge through the seasons

and camp neath the stars above;
I think of my home town and the
one I love:
The meeting will not be joyous
but one of sorrow;
For they wrote and told me for
us there will be no tomorrow:
We mads a vow when I returned
we would never part;
But a war in a distant land broke
her aching heart:
The tears she cried when
knowing she would be left alone;
If I didnt return would be on her
very own:
But now shes up in heaven
getting lots of tender care;
And I have all these memories
and a lock of golden hair.

Facts about the 1500s

There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house.
This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other
droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big
posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection.
That's how canopy beds came into existence

People born before 1946 were called
I'm Sure you can imagine, The Silent & Powerful Generation.
Its as simple as can be, People born between 1946 and 1964 are called
The place is Piccadilly, The Baby Boomers.
The people He and She! People born between 1965 and 1979 are
called Generation X.
She whispered "will it hurt me?" And people born between 1980 and 2010 are
"Of course not" answered he, called Generation Y.
"It's a very simple process, Why do we call the last group Generation Y?
You can rely on me". Y should I get a job?
Y should I leave home and find my own place?
She said "I'm very frightened, Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?
I've not had this before, Y should I clean my room?
My friend has had it five times, Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?
And said it can be sore". Y should I buy any food?
But a cartoonist explained it very eloquently
It was growing rather painful,
Tears formed in her eyes,
It was hurting quite a bit now,
It must have been a size.

"Calm yourself" he whispered,

"His face filled with a grin,
"Try and open wider,
So I can get more in".

"It's coming now" he whispered,

"I know" she cried in bliss,
Feeling it deep within her now,
She said "I'm glad I'm having this".

And with a final effort,

She gave a frightened shout,
He gripped it in anguish,
And quickly pulled it out.

She lay back quite contented,

Sighed, and gave a smile,
She said "I'm glad I came now,
You made it worth my while".

Now if you read this carefully,

The dentist you will find,
It's not what you imagined,
It's just your dirty mind!!
