Roseneath Theatre’s La Maleta

Dear St John Paul II Families,

On Tuesday November 12th Roseneath Theatre will present their production of La Maleta(The Suitcase) for our Gr 3-5 students. La Maleta (The Suitcase) is the story of Roca, a ten-year-old refugee who escapes her native Colombia clutching her suitcase – inside which she believes her grandmother is hiding. Struggling to adapt to a new city, a new school and a new way of life, Roca befriends Paz, a boy with a secret who is being bullied by their classmates. Opening the suitcase leads them to embark on an adventure where Roca finds the courage, hope and strength to adapt to her new home. Incorporating both Spanish and English, this production will engage students’ imaginations and provide insight into what a new student who doesn’t speak their language might be feeling and thinking.

A special thank you to our CSC for helping to support this program. All SJPII family members are welcome to attend.
