MODEL UNITED NATIONS ASSEMBLY (MUNA) On 15 June I arrived at Forest Edge camp to begin a two day debating contest, representing the nation of Peru with Kaitlyn from Toorak College as my partner. We had never met before so had researched Peru individually. Two person teams from over ten different schools were competing. We all dressed in traditional clothing. We debated many issues from around the world including the threat of nuclear weapons, climate change and even asylum seekers. The weekend was good fun with many great speeches being made and many great questions being asked by all nations. At the end of the weekend, Brazil took home the overall winner trophy while my partner and I won the Peace trophy. We were commended on the fact that we were the only team from two different schools. I am thrilled to win this trophy for Casey Grammar School.

Congratulations Taylor A (Year 11) on your wonderful success!

"One" for the Drama Tour Ensemble

One is the show for the Drama Tour to the Gold Coast, Queensland this year.
Students involved range from Years 9 to 12.
Natalie Burns is the magical, never tiring main director.

Hannah Mueller, the Drama Captain for 2012, explained in the school assembly:
The Gold Coast Drama Tour Ensemble have been rehearsing their original production ‘One’ since October last year. The ensemble has been working hard learning lines, devising choreography, writing and composing songs, learning cover songs. The performance is a musical and involves 31 students from Years 9-12. It is a touring production and in the July school holidays we will be taking the show up to Queensland to perform at six different high schools. We couldn’t be more excited, but before we set off we will be performing the premiere show in Melbourne. What would you do if you knew that every decision you made would shape the rest of your life? Rachel is a quiet, academic girl, sick of being told to relax. Torn between liking two boys, wanting people to like her and wanting to do well in school, the decisions she makes in one day change everything. With best friends, boys, ex-friends and an upcoming party to deal with, Rachel and her peers learn that no matter who we are, the choices we make now define who we will become in the future. One moment, one decision, one mistake, one life changed...forever.
About 400 people viewed the premiere in the Casey Grammar Performaing Arts Centre.

Wishing this great band of students a successful and fun drama tour over the July holidays!
And take care of Ms Burns!

When in Rome

On the evening of 7th June, Year 10 students of Casey Grammar presented the fun, entertaining When in Rome.
Earlier in the week, to advertise the show, the cast dressed up and danced round the school handing out leaflets advertising the show.
Such a colourful sight seeing the Roman world come to life.
And under the creative, skilled guidance of Ms Natalie Burns, the show rolled out to the delight of about 200 people in the audience!

Congratulations to you all!
You are wonderful!
