Natale at HT – Christmas at HT filming in week 10

Natale at HT – Christmas at HT filming in week 10

Dear parents 

In light of our school production being cancelled I thought that it would be great if the students could still participate in a performance. This term the students have been working on a christmas performance that will be filmed and streamed to families. Students are encouraged to come to school on their designated filming day dressed up in Christmas colours or costume. Students can either come to school dressed in their chosen outfit or if they prefer they can wear their school uniform and bring their items in a clearly marked bag to change into at their designated class filming time. It would be preferred if students wear school shoes or runners as well. There is no need to buy anything new for the filming – whatever you already have at home is perfectly fine. For example: xmas tshirt, red top, green top, christmas headband, christmas hat etc… Some students have discussed with me that they already have a Christmas costume for example: Christmas onesies, Elf costume, Santa costume, reindeer costume, angel costume etc.. so they are more than welcome to wear these.

Each grade will be assigned a time to be filmed throughout the day. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me via email – jformichelli@htws.catholic.edu.au

Looking forward to showcasing the students Christmas performances!

Ciao Signora Formichelli

ITALIAN FAMILY CHALLENGE!!

Ciao a tutti!! I hope that everyone is going well. I have missed seeing you all at school! For the past two weeks Signora has been running an Italian family challenge. In this challenge families were asked to create the Italian flag using objects from around the house. The entries were FANTASTICO and it was very hard to decide so Signora asked Mr Downie and Mr Harvie to help. Please watch the link to find out who the winner is:
