Ella’s Diary #11: Going Green

Ella's school is going green! And there's going to be an election to choose a Planet Protector Captain! Being Captain is Ella's dream: she'll get to be in charge of all the cool projects and get to wear a sparkly uniform!

But sneaky Peach wants to be Captain too, and will stop at nothing to get more votes. Will Ella get the top job, or will Peach rule the school once again?

Kiddyrock Workshop

Kiddyrock music and play workshops are about exploration, collaboration, creation and imagination!


They will focus on music and movement bringing drums, ukuleles, percussion instruments, xylophones, exploratory play boxes, dancing props and puppets with them to The Little Bookroom...


The music component is typically sung live with an acoustic instrument played by the instructor and children and their carers are invited and encouraged to play along on the musical equipment provided. They also use original recorded music so the instructors can lead children in movement and dancing exercises incorporating Key Word Sign.


Their programs are mindfully designed to inspire. Children can work independently or collaborate with their peers.
