Hello Friends and Families of Belfast School!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Please NOTE there is no school tomorrow Friday Oct. 7 or on Monday Oct. 10
Casting For Snow White
We had 64 students show up to audition for our winter production of Snow White. There was approximately 40 parts that were listed in the actual play however, Mr. Symington worked hard to create even more parts for students. Today we announced the casting to the students who had auditioned. We feel it is very important to honour all the students who showed up for auditions, and while there are not 64 main cast roles, we have found ways so that every student who auditioned can have a moment to shine. Students who were not cast in a main role will still be showcased doing “something special” within their classroom groups. In this way we hope to create opportunities for as many students as possible. We hope this provides some clarification for parents who are helping to frame the news for their children who may not have got the part that they hoped for.
Winter Production Information
Please note that rehearsals for the play will be happening throughout the day during school hours so no further time(s) at the moment are required for students to stay after school this week.
