Saints in the finals!

Secondary School
Posted: Monday 18 September 2023

Congratulations to the Year 11 students in the Saints Volleyball team who made it through to the Grand final of the Albany Volleyball Associations mixed Competitive division. The team have been training hard all season and were rewarded for all the early morning training sessions and Wednesday night games with a grand final opportunity. While they didn't produce their best game and went down to the 'Five foot committee' side, they can take credit for a fantastic season. Thanks to the parents and staff supporting the team throughout the season.

Grease is the WORD! presented by Albany Light Opera and Theatre Company

Posted: Monday 4 September 2023

A wop bop a lu mop a wop bam boom! ‘Grease is the Word’ for ALOTCo in 2023!

If you've loved Grease since you first saw it on the big screen or fell in love with one of the stage revivals ... Throw your mittens around your kittens and away we go ….

It's 1959 and Rydell High Seniors are in fine form - the too-cool-for-school Pink Ladies and T-Birds rule.

At times crass, tough, vulnerable, lusty, and romantic, Grease the musical follows ten working class teens as they navigate the complexities of peer pressure, personal values and love. It's not all about Sandy and Danny. The focus of this production will be developing a strong ensemble performance that takes the audience back to gritty roots of Grease before the highly polished, but beloved film version.

Adult themes.
