Thanks to all our families who shared Father’s Day with us enjoying our beautiful performers. There was lots of wonderful singing and playing! And we’re thrilled to already be receiving emails from parents who loved our day: ‘Thank you for the photos. I told Miss Lindi that I thought the concert was very well done. As Daphne is the youngest of four children, I have been to a fair few concerts, recitals and performances throughout the last 13 years. You got it just right and we appreciated the thought and care you put into planning an appropriate program. Thank you for a lovely Father’s Day performance. We are looking forward to Term 4.’ ‘Thank you and all of AMS for organising such a wonderful concert. It was great fun. Lucy loved it. Here are some photos of Mr Jake’s Tuesday 5.30 class.’‘ ‘Dear Michelle, We have just got home from our fabulous concert. Each year we thoroughly enjoy the performance. It is always slick, professional and absolutely beautiful, this year was no exception. Angus, as always, had a ball! Thank you to you all.’
We had a great time on AMS CAMP!
We sang, played, ate, jumped, dressed up, sang some more…
We did tubes groups, percussion groups, hands groups…
We learned to play the Ukulele and the nose flute!
We loved being together!
Here are a few photos – a link with lots will be sent to our campers.
