Perth St. John’s Party 2011

What are you doing on the 16th July? We know where we will be! The Perth St. John’s party is happening at the Doubleview Bowling Club between 12 and 8pm and we wouldn’t miss it for the world! The feast day is traditionally a celebration of midsummer and rural life in Brazil and has other adaptations around the globe. The Perth party on the 16th July includes traditional Brazilian music and dancing, Brazilian cuisine and drinks, games, raffles, and prizes. There will also be a prize for the best traditional costume. So what are you waiting for? Grab a ticket from reception (only $10) or buy a ticket at the door ($15-much cheaper if you buy in advance). For further information ask Felicity or have a look at flyers around the school.

Origami Fun

On Monday GV Perth students enjoying making gorgeous little origami animals. Perhaps the best part was the naming of creatures. There were horses, swans and cranes with such names as “Will Smith”, “Cute”, and “Ugly”. Very creative!
