After the cancellation of the Inter House Music competition prior to the Winter holidays because of school closure for swine flu, a new musical event was scheduled for Monday 10th August. The new event, a Festival of House Music, allowed each House to present musical items that, given the disruptions and interruptions in preparations, they felt confident in performing. Each House presented at least two musical numbers alongside a Year 12 Corito and a combined performance of all Houses of a set musical piece.
The evening was a wonderful success with our students showcasing their musical talents, performing their musical numbers with confidence, flair and high levels of ability. The audience was treated to a wide range of musical styles that kept everyone enthralled from start to finish.
The Festival was a great success and the students deserve particular credit for overcoming numerous obstacles in the lead up to this event. They demonstrated tremendous tenacity and determination to overcome these problems and to not only perform, but to perform with distinction! The sincere thanks of the school go to all who participated in this event and, in particular, to the musical directors who led their Houses outstandingly. Congratulations and thank you.
