       From the Principal
       Legally Blonde
       Congratulations to everyone involved in the
       musical. This annual event is truly a highlight of
       our school year at Manly Campus. The musical
       provides an opportunity to showcase the depth of
       individual and collective talent of our students,
       and brings together the community in a way that
       needs to be seen to be understood. Thank you to
       the many parents and alumni who provided such
       valuable support, ensuring the production was a
       huge success. Thank you to Annetta Verduyn who
       coordinated a team of parents who created the
       costumes, Marg Martin and Annie Woods who,
       assisted by a group of parents, catered for the cast
       and crew each night. Alumni Ben Mills, Michael
       Goodyear, Keith Muir, Tom Coy and Yiming Teng
       whose technical and production expertise ensured
       the production was of such a high quality and to
       our rehearsal assistants; Khika Withnell, Tara
       Dunch, Talia Withnell, Maia Hopf and Neve
       Morgan. Thank you also to Annie McCubbin, a
       parent of an ex-student, who provided the drama
       coaching for our students, taking their
       performance to the next level.

       This wonderful event would not be possible
       without the passion, enthusiasm, expertise and
       hard work of our talented teachers; Chloe
       Woodward, Lucienne Herft and Lanneke Grace.
