- Teachers enrol via the registration form on the CaSPA website to indicate participation and number of students attending.
- 2020 Let's Sing is a NESA approved course. Teachers who wish to attain accreditation for participation in this event must register separately via PHRIS/ELM. Completing Let's Sing will contribute 4 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing 6.2.2 from the Australian Teaching Professional Standards towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
Course Code: 2000-9092
Once registered, each school will be given instructions on how to access the “Let’s SING” repertoire online. This resource includes the vocal score and matching audio guides for the pieces to be learnt for the Let’s Sing Masterclass and for the Massed Choir as part of CaSPA LiVE 2020 at the International Convention Centre, Darling Harbour on Tuesday 23 June.
To ensure that we make the best use of time during the Masterclass session, we ask that schools be adequately prepared for the event.
INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL PERFORMANCE
The introductory part of the day will feature a performance from each school’s vocal group of one song of your choice.
Your performance accompaniment can be either backing track or played live using the in-house grand piano. If using a track as accompaniment we would require this no later than Friday 15 May. Performance duration should not exceed 3.5min to allow time for every ensemble to perform during the first session.
It is preferable that the number of students per school does not exceed 25 to allow as many schools as possible to participate and as we will work in parts, the recommended year level for primary students is Years 5 - 6.
The performance running order will be determined on the day.
Access to the venue is via the Neich Parade entrance only.
‘Let’s SING’ will commence promptly at 9:30am so we ask that all schools make the necessary travel arrangements to be present at the venue by 9:00am.
Students should wear either school uniform or school sports uniform.
Students should bring sufficient food and water for the day, as they will not have access to the SCCVC Canteen. Supervising staff will be able to order their lunch from the school canteen prior to 9:30am. Food can only be consumed during the breaks in the courtyard outside the SCCVC Theatre.
Students will have access to the SCCVC student toilets in the main courtyard. Students who need to leave the theatre at any time are asked to do so in pairs.
DUTY OF CARE:
Schools must provide adequate teacher supervision for the number of students participating. Supervising teachers must also have immediate access to student emergency contact details on the day and any emergency response plans for acute medical conditions.
