News from Aria School

Birdtalk Magazine June & July 2024

A hilarious musical adventure!
A castle full of colourful characters join in the fun, including precocious princesses, a talking dragon - and not forgetting Merlin and his magic mirror!

When young squire Watt Cobblers is expelled from Knight School, he reluctantly becomes Merlin’s new apprentice. But trouble is never far away, and soon Camelot Castle collapses into chaos. Merlin has lost Excalibur, King Arthur’s daughters have been kidnapped and his brave knights have turned into chickens.

Watt and his newfound friends Dusty Dragon and wayward Princess Alice set off on the biggest quest of their lives.
But can our unlikely heroes rescue the princesses, save Excalibur and defeat the evil Black Knight? The answers are found in this magical production, where everyone is guaranteed to sing a lot, dance a lot and laugh a lot... at Camelot!

Mark the date for Āria School’s annual production on your calendar now!
Two performances -
Matinee at 11am and evening at 7pm on Thursday 22nd August in the Āria Hall.
All welcome!

Science Celebration 2024

On Wednesday, July 3, Āria School will again be hosting the Science and Technology Celebration at the Āria Hall which is an initiative to encourage schools to promote science investigations and technology problem solving.

It is a way for students to investigate and problem solve in practical situations and is open to students from year 1 to 8. Everyone is welcome to come and have a look at the wonderful projects that will be on display; it’s a good chance to come and learn from our children. The displays will be set up prior to judging which takes place on Tuesday morning.

The hall will be open to the public from 12:30pm – 5pm on Tuesday 2nd July and also Wednesday 3rd from 8am – 10.30am when Prizegiving will be held.

Although the projects are judged, the emphasis is on participation.
