The kids concert went great, on Thursday night. It was a very hot day, but it was nice to sit in the Airconditioning! The concert was based on the book, The tale of the three trees:

One of the Grade 7s read the story to the audience, then each class sang and danced to songs representing different parts of the story! It was very good, and a lovely story.

Thankfully, the concert only went for an hour this year, last year it went for over 2 hours - all a bit long, not only for children in the audience, but for the poor kids in the concert as well! 1 hour was just perfect!

It was a bit tricky getting photos during the concert, as we were sitting in the dark, and it was so bright on stage, I had to use the "night" setting, which you have to be extremely still, when taking the shot... which I'm not so good at! And the lady in front of us kept moving into the shot! grrrr! I took video of H's class song, and am too lazy to pull that off the camera and load into u-tube! M was a tree... in the group shot, she is behind the girl with the microphone, on the far left, M is on her right! (headband on). Hs class were dressed like little soldiers, that did alot of marching in their song! H wasn't marching, though, he was holding a ladybug prop!!! Thought that was a bit ironic?!!!
