Shake and Stir: This term, Shake and Stir delivered their powerful and thought-provoking play, 'Vacant,' to all students from Years 10 to 12. The play explored the challenges faced by school students and left a lasting impact on everyone who experienced it. 'Vacant' was highly entertaining and resonated deeply with the audience.

Dance Company: Our dedicated Dance Company has been diligently preparing for the upcoming DanceX competition in Bundaberg. They are eagerly looking forward to showcasing their talents with mesmerising routines titled 'Seize the Day' (Musical Theatre), 'In Case You Don't Live Forever' (Lyrical), 'A Little Party' (Jazz), and 'Someone New' (Lyrical). Additionally, several students will be performing captivating solo dances. We extend our best wishes to all the participants, and may they shine brightly on the stage.

Musical: Prepare to be enchanted by 'Anastasia the Musical.' Set in 1920s St. Petersburg, the musical follows the journey of Anya, a young orphan longing to uncover her lost family. Along the way, she encounters Vlad, an ex-aristocrat, and Dmitri, a charming conman, who convince her that she may be Anastasia, the Romanov duchess rumoured to have survived the Russian Revolution.

This term, our students have poured their hearts into perfecting their singing, acting, and performing skills. The costumes have been meticulously crafted, and the sets designed to transport the audience to a bygone era. Mark your calendars for this unmissable event! Please refer to the attached flyer for essential information and join us in supporting our hard-working students for this captivating show.

Visual Art: On behalf of the entire Arts Department, we would like to express our gratitude and bid farewell to Nicole Graham. Nicole has been an invaluable member of Rockhampton Girls Grammar for many years and has recently added Visual Arts to her already impressive teaching repertoire. She will be greatly missed by both staff and students, and we extend our best wishes for her future endeavours.

In the spirit of new beginnings, we warmly welcome our new Visual Arts teacher, Ms. Nicole Francis-Leah, to the Girls Grammar community. Nicole brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our arts program, and we are excited to have her as a part of the Arts Department.

This term has been a resounding success for the arts, and we are immensely proud of our talented students. Their dedication, creativity, and passion continue to inspire us all.

We eagerly look forward to the next chapter of artistic exploration and achievement at Rockhampton Girls Grammar School.
