Performing Arts


Congratulations and thanks to the many boys who performed at functions held at the College over the past two weeks. The Senior String Quartet, Studio Orchestra and Senior Vocal Ensemble were involved in the official opening of the Memorial Hall, Julien Montandon (Year 7, Robert) performed as a soloist at the Middle School Assembly while Ethan Lamb (Year 10, Ross) and our Junior Guitar Ensemble entertained audiences at Grandparents Day functions in the Junior School.

Thanks also to William Mahaffy (Year 5, Andrew), Marcus Whittome (Year 2, David), Kristian Bellekom (Year 4 Andrew), Jack Mayo (Year 3, Bruce) and Vincent Zhu (Year 4, Andrew) who all gave a great performance of their String Instruments for the Year 2 boys last week under the guidance of Ms Mikaljo. I hope their demonstration will help the Year 2s when they come to choose their preferred string instrument to play next year.

Please take note of the dates on the term planner below as we have some exciting end of year concerts in the coming weeks.
