Narelle Vella has been the Performing Arts teacher at Kingswood Primary School since 2007. 
She has a passion for singing and Music in particular, but also has a keen interest in Drama and Dance.
Her love of music ranges from classical through to jazz, rock and current popular music.
She enjoys going to both professional and amateur musical productions and concerts.

Narelle is the director of both the Kingswood Senior and Junior Choirs.  
She enjoys being a specialist teacher because it gives her the opportunity
of getting to know and teaching every student in the school over their seven
years of Primary School.

2021 is a 'Non-Production' year. Therefore, instead of any concerts, students will experience a range of Performing Arts incursions.

During Term 1, students were able to watch a live music performance of Didgeribones. This indigenous performer was highly engaging
for the students and complemented  Kingswood's music program which featured songs and music from the Torres Strait Islander peoples
and other Australian indigenous songs.

Students in Years 1 - 6 also participated in a dance lesson from Stomp! Dance Company. 
Prep students will be having their Stomp! lesson on Friday 11th June.

Term 2 has a drama focus and our students watched a live puppet performance in April called 'Escape From Trash Mountain'.
This puppet show had a strong sustainability theme. 

Below are the lyrics to our School Song and the National Anthem.
Note the highlighted word change in green and other words in yellow 
that people often sing incorrectly.

Kingswood School Song Lyrics
Nestled in the heart of Dingley Village,
Kingswood Primary School are we. 
Here we learn and work together, 
We’re a friendly community. 
We have a caring, safe environment. 
We look after and protect.
So if you’re looking for a place to learn, 
With integrity and respect, 
We have it all here at Kingswood, 
Look around you and you will see. 
We have it all here at Kingswood, 
It’s the best place that we could be, 
And for a great education, 
We are sure you will agree, that there is 
No better school than Kingswood, 
No better school than Kingswood, 
No better school than Kingswood, 
We’re a friendly community. 
We’re a friendly community.
