SCEAvision World Languages Performance Contest
At Kalamunda Christian School we celebrate the cultural backgrounds of our school community and wish to build inter-cultural understanding and foreign language skills in all students.
Students from Years 1-6 are invited to audition for this year’s SCEAvision contest. SCEAvision is a world languages performance contest involving all seven SCEA schools.
To audition, students will need to select and learn a song, poem or a dramatic piece in a language other than English.
The best performances from Kalamunda Christian School will be selected to represent us at the SCEAvision grand final on Tuesday evening 27 August 2019 at the Swan Christian College Maali Mia Performing Arts Centre.

Registrations close on Monday 29 July.
- The competition is for students from Years 1-6.
- At least 50% of the performance is to be in a language other than English, this may include Auslan.
- Nursery rhymes are only allowed in the Year 1-2 category
- Students can compete individually, in pairs or in small groups of up to four children. Please note that students will need to practice in their own time as this is not part of a school program. If students perform as part of a group any trophy won will be shared.
- A good way to learn a song in a foreign language is to go onto YouTube. Students can do a search of their favourite song in their preferred language, for instance ‘Do re mi in Italian with lyrics’. A slow, short and familiar song in a language that uses the same letters as English is the easiest to learn.
- Students are judged on their fluency for the performance but do not necessarily need to be able to speak the language chosen.
- A backing track for the child’s performance needs to be provided and must be instrumental only and can be provided as a link, CD or USB. Children may also be accompanied by an instrument.
- In case of a poem or a dramatic performance/reading, contestants are required to provide an English translation, which will be projected on the screen during the performance.
- The performances should not be longer than three minutes in length.
- As a Christian community, we ask that parents select an appropriate performance piece that adheres to our values and beliefs.
Registered students will be invited to an audition in the second week of Term 3. The auditions will be held during school hours.
Successful auditionees will have the opportunity to perform for our students on Monday 5 August at a student assembly. The parents of our finalists will be notified.
