Spring Spectacular

The Annual Spring Concert, held on Monday night at The Wedge in Sale, was a great display of musical talent. With performances from all the major ensembles, the evening showcased a diverse collection of musical genres, performed to an excellent standard. The Lawless Family prize, recognising a quiet achiever within the Music program, was presented to Sam Davis.

 

As is our tradition, we also farewelled the Year 12 musicians and choristers. It was lovely to hear them express their gratitude to their music teachers and conductors, who have undoubtedly shown such belief in the students and guided them over many years.

 

Congratulations to the staff and students for their performances and work in preparation for the Spring Concert.

 

The countdown begins

This week, we have also begun the countdown to the final days of classes for Year 12 students. We have a number of events planned next week to mark these final days but, of course, our focus continues to be ensuring that students are well prepared for their Unit 3-4 examinations, which commence in the following week.

 

The students have been attending revision lectures, meeting with teachers, completing practice examinations and using classes to clarify and revise content and techniques, which we believe will see them well placed to achieve their best and secure greater choices about their options beyond School.

 

It is an exciting time, but also one when, for some, the pressure of what is to come and the realisation of the changes ahead can mean mixed emotions. Nonetheless, we have been very purposeful in our approach with Year 12 this week and will ensure that this important milestone, finishing secondary school, is marked with meaningful events next week. To this end, all students will be involved in Year 12 celebration events during Periods 1 and 6 next Wednesday, when a Farewell Chapel Service starts the day, and we finish with the Year 12 Final Assembly in Period 6.
