ENCORE: Festival of the Arts



Encore 2017 was a wonderful evening, showcasing the plentiful artistic talents of BCC students from both the Lyneham and Charnwood campuses. The College was ardorned with fairy lights, bunting and lanterns and the LLC and MS rooms were transformed into gallery spaces, displaying beautiful and though provoking art, sculpture and photographic works from students from Kindergarten to Year 12. Food technology students served delicious hors-d’oeuvre while families and friends admired our students work.

The evening’s entertainment opened with performances from our talented Senior Band and Chamber String Orchestra followed by Shaylies Dance group. A beautiful touch of Chinese culture was added to the night by the Year 5/6 Chinese Dance group’s stunning fan performance. We then heard from a number of our School of Rock ensembles, who got our toes tapping with performances of Treat You Better, Living on a Prayer
and Hey Soul Sister. The Middle and Senior Choir lifted the roof with their performance of Les Miserable Medley and Get Back Up Again from the movie Trolls. In MS1 the Year 2 and 3 classroom music shared with us what they had been learning, followed by performances from our talented College music students.


Welcome to Jane Cronan

To get to know some of our new staff members, we have asked them a couple of questions.

Resolving Conflict

Conflict is a normal part of life. It is the way we resolve conflict that is important. According to Kids Matter setting the stage for positive conflict resolution involves setting up WIN-WIN outcomes, having children state their own needs and concerns, helping children listen to the other person and understand their needs and concerns, helping children think of different ways to solve the problem,building WIN-WIN solutions and putting the solution into action to see how it works. These are all things we can do as parents and as educators to teach children how to develop the skills they need to manage conflict.
