Thank you to Arts staff, Rachel Newcombe, Elise Immanuel, Deanna Handley, Nadia MacKenzie and Marie Nicholson who have done such a wonderful job preparing the students for their performances. To all teachers who have accompanied and supervised choirs to and from the venues over the past four days, thank you for your excellent shoe shining, hairdressing and sock maintenance skills – you are greatly appreciated.

Best of luck to our instrumentalists and dancers who begin their group College performances next week.
