Seussical Jr! Tickets available now.
Seussical Jr is fast approaching, and we can’t wait for audiences to see our fabulously talented performers. Rehearsals have been lots of fun and extremely productive as the show comes together beautifully! It has been incredible to witness the casts’ skill development, support of each other and desire to fulfill their potential.
Seussical Jr is a show full of music and dancing, and our team of choreographers, including Sophie Tsoulos, Sue Nairn, Julia Horne and Alicia Whitton have been putting the girls through their paces which has been amazing!
Excitement is building as the set was delivered this week and costumes are nearly finished. A team of students is working on painting props and set pieces to bring the ‘Jungle of Nool’ and ‘Whoville’ to life.
This is a show not to be missed. Tickets are available now, please visit the Events Page on our website and follow the link to book or click here.
See you in the Jungle!
LINKS to Future Pathways
Learning Innovation at Kildare College is a priority, and we are always excited to share external educational opportunities with our community. We call these programs LINKs Subjects as they link the school environment with the wider community and offer a range of new and exciting experiences. Two of our LINKs programs include Headstart and STEM Academy.
We are pleased to support Year 12 students interested in integrating the University of Adelaide Headstart Program into their senior studies. Headstart allows Year 12 students to undertake a university subject as part of their senior subject load and gain credit towards their chosen future degree. Headstart does involve an application process that is administered by the University of Adelaide. More information about the application process can be found at https://www.adelaide.edu.au/headstart/ and those interested in registering for the Information Session to be held on 23 November can reserve free tickets at https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/headstart-scholarship-program-2023-information-night-tickets-431358794767
We are also pleased to encourage 2023 Year 12 students studying Science subjects to sign up to the University of Adelaide STEM Academy. Whilst participation in the program includes invitations to exclusive STEM events and workshops throughout the year, it also allows students to receive conditional early offers to a variety of University of Adelaide STEM degrees. Information about STEM Academy for Year 12 students can be found at https://www.adelaide.edu.au/stem/academy/year-12-students

Prospect Spring Fair
On Saturday 29 October the Prospect Spring Fair was back at Broadview Oval/Tarntya Tutu Yarta, Poltawa Terrace, Broadview – after a two-year COVID pause. It was a beautiful day full of sunshine, entertainment, amusement rides, community groups and, of course, our wonderful Kildare promotions tent and performing arts students.
Together as a cast of 34, Kildare senior dancers, Year 7 scholarship students and Seussical Jr cast joined together to present a 20 minute presentation of work. Opening with Beatles classic ‘Come Together’ the students certainly caught the crowd’s attention and with the help of Mrs Neate and Ms Hennig cheering from the side lines we drew quite a gathering at the stage.
Solos from our lovely Year 7 dancers followed and Seussical Jr cast created intrigue with some very colourful and zany costumes. After a melodious song from Tyler Stephenson and Tahlia Sabatino we concluded with ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ the finale to Seussical Jr, to a sturdy applause from spectators.
Meanwhile back in the promotions tent, Kildare Staff and prefects were busy making Alginate Worms, painting laser engraved wooden reindeers, and spreading the word on how much we love our College. It was so nice to be back amongst community and adding to the fun of the fair with our Kildare spirit!
The Prospect Spring Fair is a popular event hosted by the City of Prospect and draws people of all ages and interests. We look forward to seeing you there next year.

Parent Information Evening
With great anticipation and excitement Kildare College welcomed the families of our 2023 Year 7 students to a Parent Information Night on Tuesday 8 November.
It was a wonderful opportunity for our families to connect with staff, student leaders and of course other parents of Year 6 students.
The evening was a mixture of general information about the transition experience of a student from primary to high school, a current parent’s insight into engagement with the College community, small group conversations with our staff and students, as well as providing families with further information from our Music, Finance, and IT staff.
Most importantly, it allowed us to connect with our new families and provide support and guidance for their daughter’s journey into high school.
