This is an exciting week at Sunnybrook, with auditions and casting for our upcoming production of The Lion King. Our annual musical distills the best elements of our community into one big production. For our students, auditions are the first step to bringing the show to life.
The words of our mission statement – the will to learn, the courage to act, the confidence to succeed march around the walls of our Arts Studio. Beneath them our students brought those words to life performing on stage for their auditions. Learning lines, mustering the courage to perform in front of the audition team, all of them succeeding in their own way. Auditions are also challenging; so many wonderful performances, and only so many major roles in the show. I admire our students for their determination, hard work, and willingness to risk disappointment. I also know that whatever role they take on, each one of them will give the show their very best.
February is also re-enrolment month. You will have received your letter and forms this week; please be sure to respond no later than February 14th to secure your spot for your child next year. This Friday is also a big day for your children, when they bring their reports home to share with you.
I wish everyone the very best for February, and for the Family Day weekend, which will give us all a welcome break on our journey through winter term.
