It was amazing to see our first assembly for Term 2 from a ‘virtual perspective’. For the first time in Woodlands PS history, our assembly was pre-filmed and shown in class to students at the normal Wednesday morning assembly time, to adhere to the current restrictions placed on us by the pandemic.
One of the aspects that stood out, was how personal it all felt! Everyone was treated to a front row seat, and the assembly gave us a fabulous new perspective of the school. Scenes from all over the school were able to be included for the different items, students from Room 14 presented from their classroom; student leaders presented from the music room (including an impressive personal drum roll for the drawing of the golden ticket); Mr Power presented from in front of the colourful school mosaic; and scenes from the quadrangle were shown throughout the Australian National Anthem. It was wonderful to clearly see the merit award winners faces as they were able to personally show off their merit certificates.
One of the major highlights was Room 14’s item about the First Fleet, with the students looking fabulous in their sailing outfits as they sailed to Australia for the first time to the Split Enz song ‘Six Months in a Leaky Boat’. They presenting some amazing facts about The First Fleet’s journey.
We would like to thank the wonderful Room 14 students and their teacher Holly Miles for their pioneering spirit getting our first virtual assembly off the ground, an Mr David Todd for his special help in filming and editing this event.
All families should have received a link to the assembly on the schools private Woodlands PS YouTube channel. Please enjoy it and feel free to share it with your family. We would kindly ask that you don’t share it with the general public. For this reason, the links will not be posted on our website, which is accessible to the general public.
