Last week three of our string ensembles competed at the Queensland Youth Music Awards (QYMA). The Ensembles all played very well and under the wonderful direction of Ms Jo-Anne Turner received the following:

Academy Strings – Gold Award – Third Place
Bellissimo Strings – Gold Award

Congratulations to Ms Turner and all of our string players who competed, we are very proud of you and the hard work you have invested to playing your best this year.

A reminder to everyone that tickets can now be purchased for our college musical ANNIE for show dates of 18 – 20 July 2019. Click here to book tickets. Rehearsals are going very well, and I look forward to seeing this wonderful show come to life with its sets, costumes and lighting. Thanks to the student volunteers and Art staff who helped paint some of the sets at our Open Day on the weekend, they are looking amazing.

I encourage all students in the musical to rehearse your parts and revise your choreography. I look forward to seeing it all come together at our rehearsal on Sunday the 26 May.
