Performing Arts News

The Year 3 boys were in for a very big surprise last week when they found out that one of their teachers, Mr Dickson, is actually a rock star! Mr. Dickson blew us away with his awesome solo on the drum kit - he even had a double kick pedal! The boys couldn't help but keep the beat with some body percussion as Mr Dickson rocked out on the drums. As a result of this Mr Dickson decided to try having the boys and Mrs Turkich continue an ostinato pattern (think We Will Rock You) as he played an improvised solo. The boys were left buzzing in awe. I would be very interested to know how many boys went home after school that day to ask Mum or Dad if they could start drum lessons!
