At the end of last term our extra curricula performing arts programs put together a fantastic performance that was presented to our whole student body on the Wednesday, and then an audience of 700 parents and extended family on the Thursday night.
These performances were a huge success showcasing the exceptional talent of our students, and as always leaving myself and I am sure everyone in the audience amazed at their confidence on stage. I am always in awe of what these young students deliver on stage and I need to acknowledge and thank the fantastic work of our performing arts teacher Mrs McMahon and the team of teachers – so many of whom all volunteer their time to make these opportunities happen for our students.  Our performance night managed to raise $ 3 000, which is a fantastic boost to our performing arts program and has already been invested back in to more mics and audio gear for improved performances.
This year’s performance was also very special as it delivered our very clear message to all that we don’t want any form of bullying at Talara. It is important to acknowledge that there are and always will be incidents of teasing, rough play, exclusion and bullying within a school, in the community and later on within a workplace. Our commitment and vision at Talara is that we make it very clear that it is unacceptable and that everyone -  students, staff and parents have a role in helping address this unacceptable behaviour. All of the research indicates that the best strategies to minimise these behaviours includes;
ü  give the students clear tools to respond (TPC Safe 5 High 5)
ü  talk openly at school and at home and give the student the language to respond (empowering our students to be the turtle and reflect negative comments with their shell, as opposed a sponge and absorb them all in)
ü  if behaviour persists report
ü  the best role models are the adults in their lives
Working together we can assist our students to be strong and confident, as well as caring and concerned for others.
