Fabulous Friday

14/06/2013

​It was a crisp and clear day for the MP sports carnival. The school spirit and determination on display by students was terrific and there were many performances where children achieved their personal best and conquered their nerves.

Sincere thanks to Mrs Pitcher for her organisation of this great event. Congratulations to our age champions: Joe and Jessica (9 years); Kent and Ira (10 years) Jude and Hope (11 years); Marquez and Chloe (12 years).

In the afternoon, our Year 4 strings students who attended the week long Southside Junior Strings Camp performed their final concert at Marshall Road State School. The performance was the culmination of a week where the Southside Metropolitan Region’s string teachers brought together 160 students to practice the instrumental and choir items for the concert.

Congratulations to Abigail, Ally, Josh, Lucy, Romain, Sara and Trey for the commitment they showed during the course of the week. Thanks also to our strings teacher Josie Price for ensuring our students had this opportunity and who worked beside them during the camp.

The music the students produced was beautiful. The students and teachers must have been so focused to be able to produce such high quality work within that time-frame. It was a great experience for our students and I look forward to seeing how this has enhanced their musicianship and love of their instrument.
