The countdown to Christmas and summer holidays is exciting every year but no more so than now, when Mrs Gonsha’s class is graduating from Grade 6. Everyone is thrilled to be going to High School, even Debra-Jo, who has been having a difficult time letting go of primary school – ‘the best years of her life’. The children are feverishly immersed in their Graduation plans, but when they uncover the explosive news that Rory is unable to graduate with them, no one is excited about leaving school anymore. It’s too unthinkable to be abandoning Rory so the children enact a plan. The Nightmare Before Graduation encapsulates the contemporary meaning and spirit of Christmas – that love, kindness and generosity can override any obstacle.
The award-winning series Little Lunch is back, with two half-hour specials – 'The Halloween Horror Story' and 'The Nightmare Before Graduation'.
The Little Lunch series (26 x 12 min) is a comedy, where every episode takes place during that highly-anticipated school day break – morning snack time!
Each self-contained episode revolves around, and is told by, six diverse and distinctly identifiable children.
- Atticus is sweet, straight, nerdy, and always hungry
- Melanie is stubborn and morally courageous, but shy
- Tamara is not remotely shy, and excellent at sport
- Rory is naughty, distracted and so very likeable
- Battie is a gentle, creative daydreamer
- Debra-Jo is extremely smart, ambitious and organised (though some would call it bossy!)
And then there is Mrs Gonsha, their much-loved teacher, with extreme patience, a generosity of spirit and the tendency to nod off in class…
Little Lunch is an eminently relatable, universal comedy with heart for 6-12 year-olds.
