Art Show

Well done to the Ukulele Ensemble, and the Senior and Junior Rock Bands for their entertainment efforts at this year’s Art Show.

Year 3 String and Year 5 Band Night

Tuesday 19 November was another big night for many of our instrumentalists. It was the first major gig for our Year 3 string players (all of the Year 3 students), followed by the Year 5 to 7 String Ensemble and the Senior String Ensemble. The Year 5 classes also performed as a full Year 5 Band. This was followed by our Year 6 Band, Prep Concert Band and Senior Concert Band.

In both concerts it was wonderful to see the start of the instrumental process through to the Year 12 and Senior Ensembles, and the progression of the instrumental journey.
