The Stories

of the Aboriginees of North Stradbroke Island

 

Up until the 1960s there were a large number of Aboriginal commercial fishers on the Island. Today only one crew remains. The films are to celebrate and share the rich stories of the fishers. The fishing families are visiting our community and will be present at the screening.

A series of short movies exploring the lives of the North Stradbroke Island fisher people.

"Mindcraft the Musical"

6.30pm, 29th November

 

 

 

Journey with our modern family (and the dog) on their hilarious and emotional adventure, being sucked into the cyber world of ‘Minecraft’. Watch the stunning battle with barbarous baddies, to save their family from the digital dangers of the devious Ender dragon, and his empty promises and crafty mind control tricks.

 

Will the family have the will power and virtues to wake up from the Dragon’s hypnotic powers of online addiction and harmful media messages, in time to escape their digital dungeon, mend broken relationships and find hope and happiness back in reality?

About the Movie:

The Star tells the story of a small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a loveable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told - the first Christmas.

 

 


Christmas Pantomime

 

Hokitika Primary School

 

1st December, 7.00pm

 

Pool Fundraiser

 

The Christmas Carols have started a bit earlier this year at Hokitika Primary as we prepare for our Christmas Pantomime to lead up to the turning on of the Hokitika Christmas Tree lights on Friday 1st December.

 

This is a community fundraiser to assist with the upgrade of our school pool and the students at HPS will all be performing on the night along with members of the wider community (including the staff and Board of Trustees).

 

It will be a wonderful night of entertainment with a beautiful storyline that will appeal to families and a wide range of carols that will have the audience singing along. Of course Santa will be paying a visit and there will lots of Christmas goodies available prior to the 7pm start.

 

At the conclusion of the show, Snoopy will fly in to lead us to the wonderful Christmas tree where we will sing in the turning on of the Christmas tree lights. A show not to be missed, but with it only being performed for one night, tickets will sell out quickly!

 

Tickets $10.00 from Hokitika's Regent Theatre
