Slingsby's Flying Squad goes ONLINE!

Due to the recent announcement about hybrid learning for Term 1 from the Department for Education, and the temporary postponement of incursions (Week 1 – 4), Slingsby’s Flying Squad have been busy reimagining the delivery of the performance and workshops and are pleased to be able to confirm we are set to join you online.

This Tree is a Story (about everything, including you, as told by me)
The performance of This Tree Is A Story (about everything, including you, as told by me) will be available via the online platform Slingsby by Request. Students will be able to view the performance in smaller groups and spread out in available spaces to minimise students intermingling.

Education Resources – To support students to engage with the content prior to and after the performance an education resource has been developed. The resource activities are linked to the Australian Curriculum for students in Year 4 –Year 10 and for students in Year 11 – Year 12 completing the SACE.

Workshops – To support you and your students, Slingsby are pleased to offer the following workshops to ensure high quality delivery and engagement during this period. We will also provide you with a Workshop Resource Pack so that you and your students are fully equipped to participate in the workshops.

Please contact our Education Coordinator, Deanne Bullen, at deanne@slingsby.net.au for more information.
