Don’t Stop the Music

Posted on November 28, 2018 by Chris Grieve

At GeersSullivan we are grateful for the many interesting and diverse clients we deal with each day.   

One such client is Joan Peters who was recently involved in the production of the television series “Don’t Stop The Music” on the ABC.   

Joan is a media and entertainment lawyer.  She has executive produced many screen productions and in 2006 founded a not for profit organisation, Be Kids Australia Inc.    

“Don’t Stop the Music” is an inspiring celebration of the power of music in learning and the academic, creative and emotional development of children and is Joan’s latest production and one she is rightfully most proud of.  The 3-part series screened on the ABC each Sunday in November and showcases the progress of children at the Challis Community Primary School in Armadale, Western Australia. 

The completion of the filming of the program which also saw the end of payment for the costs associated with the music teachers threatened to end the profound musical journey for these children.  Be Kids Australia Inc has stepped in and is now raising tax deductible donations to support the continuation of the music program at Challis.  Go to www.bekids.org to make a tax deductible donation.  You can also donate any unwanted musical instruments to the program at https://www.abc.net.au/events/dstm/donate-an-instrument/10341758 

The first episode of Don’t Stop The Music had a tremendous response across Australia.  If you missed the broadcast, the first episode is now available on iview.

END OF FINANCIAL YEAR

Posted on July 6, 2018 by Francis Soale

Saturday night saw GeersSullivan staff & partners bring in the end of financial year in style at Market Grounds, one of Perth’s hippest inner city venues. 

Situated on the private mezzanine level of the bar overlooking the downstairs crowd, guests spent the evening mingling and reflecting on the past 12 months as well as looking forward to the excitement of a new year ahead. All guests were dressed to impress and enjoyed the vast array of food and drinks served throughout the evening. As it turned out, football fans of the party were also treated to a gripping FIFA world cup game between France & Argentina which was shown on the big screen during the night. 

As we turn the corner on another financial year, on behalf of all of us at GeersSullivan, we would like to thank you for your continued support and look forward to working closely with you all in the 2019 financial year.
