Year 4 Summer featuring in upcoming film 'Ride Like a Girl'

One of our very talented Year 4 students, Summer North, is currently in Melbourne shooting the upcoming film 'Ride Like A Girl' based of the story of iconic jockey Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup.

Summer was chosen by director Rachel Griffiths from over 5000 children who auditioned for the role of young Michelle Payne. Teresa Palmer plays older Michelle, Sam Neill plays the father and the cast is full of fabulous Australian actors.

Australian actor Rachel Griffiths will make her directorial debut for the film, which is expected to be delivered in January 2019.

Well done Summer! We look forward to hearing about your time on the set!

Inspiring students to achieve personal excellence and to be outstanding citizens who work to create a just, loving and peaceful society.
