Languages Alive at SCEAVISION Five
STUDENTS from all seven Swan Christian Education Association schools met on Tuesday 11 June for the fifth SCEAVISION performance night. Held in Swan Christian College’s Maali Mia Theatre, the 27 performances included 14 languages other than English and showcased vocal, drama, dance, sign and a puppet show.
Students took to the stage for solo performances or in duos, performance groups, or as choirs.
Languages other than English that featured included Shona, Russian, French, Filipino, Spanish, Dutch, Afrikaans, Noongar, Auslan, Maori, Xhosa, Japanese, Swahili, Latin and Indonesian.
“The students, parents and schools recognise the benefits of an event such as this at so many levels”, said Mrs Mariel Howard, Languages Consultant at Swan Christian Education Association and coordinator of the event.
“The important work we do brings such joy to students and their families by encouraging and celebrating the Arts, Languages learning and linguistic diversity”, she said.
“Planning for next year has already started”, she said.
Principal of Northshore Christian Grammar School, Mr Stuart Chisholm, said that his school’s parents and the wider community have been glowing with praise for the event.
“It was a great promotion for languages, our schools and the cooperation between us all”, said Mr Chisholm.
“[Mariel’s] tireless work to recognize language teachers and the impact of multilingualism (world languages) is appreciated. We are looking forward to next year”, he said.
We just wanted to say well done to all our Mundaring Christian College students who performed at SCEAVISION 2018. We couldn't be more proud.
