The 1950s high school dream is about to explode at Rydell High School in this rollicking musical that salutes the rock 'n' roll era. At the heart of the story is the courtship between Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a summer romance, but now back in the environment of school, peer-pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still make demure Sandy his girl? The whole gang sings and dances around this romance, through such hit songs as ‘Greased Lightnin’’, ‘Look at Me I’m Sandra Dee’, and ‘Summer Nights’, characterising the music of an era that became the soundtrack of a generation.
Congratulations to our Theatresports teams, ‘The Shady Bunch’ (Senior) and ‘Grammarlot’ (Intermediate), who have both made it through their heats in the Theatresports Schools Challenge run by Impro Australia. Both teams will compete in a semi-final in early June, fighting for a spot in the Grand Final at the Enmore Theatre on June 17, 2018.

We have invited two professionals, Lisa Maltman and Dr Philip Tam, to present a seminar which will focus on sleep for better health, resilience and performance. The link with problematic internet use will also be discussed.
Lisa Maltman from The Sleep Connection, will discuss how sleep deprivation can have significant consequences for learning, mental health, decision making and physical growth. She will provide practical strategies and advice on promoting good sleep health for all family members. Further information about her work can be found at www.thesleepconnection.com.au.

He is the President of Niira, the Network for Internet Investigation and Research Australia, a not-for-profit organisation, with a goal to promote discussion, debate and dissemination of topics related to the internet and wellbeing, worldwide.
Lisa will also be presenting to the boys in Form II in the afternoon on the same day, discussing the same topics but with a teenager’s perspective.

The Glac Project is an Australian-Serbian archaeological excavation of a site just outside Sremska Mitrovica, north-west of Belgrade on the Sava River in the Republic of Serbia.

The Glac Project is an Australian-Serbian archaeological excavation of a site just outside Sremska Mitrovica, north-west of Belgrade on the Sava River in the Republic of Serbia. Sremska Mitrovica was once the Roman city of Sirmium, an important imperial capital in the third and fourth centuries AD due to its proximity to the frontier along the Danube River. Ten Roman emperors were born in or around Sirmium, including the military strongman Maximian Herculius, who ruled as a member of the Tetrarchy at the beginning of the 4th century. The site being excavated by the Glac Project is a large luxury villa complex in a field outside Sremska Mitrovica. It is likely that this complex was a palace built by the emperor Maximian that is referred to in literary sources.
