The cast of "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" at the Orlando Rep: SBES Alumni, Trevor is feature in the center above.
St. Barnabas students are always known for going on to do great things after graduation; however, they also accomplish amazing feats during their time in school as well. Trevor Simoneau, a current eighth grader, is no exception. He recently made his debut at the Orlando Repertory Theater in the production of “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing,” starring as the understudy for the lead, Peter Hatcher. Following the journey of how Peter deals with his mischievous younger brother, Fudge, the production is a humorous look at family life and the troubles that can only be caused by a younger sibling.
Trevor can only be described as a thespian veteran. He has been involved with the Orlando Shakespeare Theater since he was three years old, and has even performed professionally with their cast in multiple productions. It had always been his dream to be cast in a production at the Orlando REP, but getting the part was never an easy feat. However, Trevor kept persevering and ended up capturing the role as the understudy to the lead of their latest comedy.
If you're currently considering giving your child a private education, likely one of your motivating factors is to be able to provide your child with a hands-on learning experience.
Particularly in the early years of your child's education, there is no better substitute for learning than lessons that require students to use both their hands and their minds. Through these hands-on learning experiences, students become more engaged and focused on the lesson at hand. Studies have shown that even students with a tendency to fidget are able to better engage when they are required to move their hands.
Naturally, hands-on learning experiences will highly engage students that are tactile or kinesthetic learners. However, hands-on experiences also allow auditory learners to talk about what they're doing, visual learners to see what everyone is creating, and social learners to spend time in small group conversation. All in all, a hands-on learning approach can benefit students of all strengths.
