Senior Speech Night Rehearsals

If you have not received a schedule please contact me (Lynley Bramble BH 9807 8888/AH 9803 7701 or email as it is essential that every player attends every rehearsal please.

There will be a special Orchestra Break-up Tea and Rehearsal on Sunday 30 November.

8.00pm – 9.00pm (String Orchestra)

This is compulsory for all players please.  So please let me know immediately if there is a problem.  Many thanks to all players for your fantastic work.

Hearty Congratulations and sincere thanks to:
1.  The Little Choir and the Little Symphony for the magnificent concert last week.  Every item was sheer delight and highly entertaining!  Special thanks to every student from Years Prep, 1 and 2 to Mrs Anne Wilson who prepared the Little Choir so beautifully and to Mrs Cruttenden, Mrs Rudd, Mrs Cole, Mrs Rickard and Mrs Maguire who gave us all such wonderful help and support.

2.  Every Junior School student and member of staff for the magnificent work in the preparation for Junior Speech Night.  As this Bulletin is released we will be putting on the final touches to each performance but it is sure to be a wonderful occasion.

3.  The Junior players and singers who performed at another Citizenship Ceremony this week.  Once again the behaviour was impeccable and the performances were thoroughly enjoyed by our new Australian citizens.  Our students loved the delicious refreshments provided!

Instrument Tuition
Many of our students have been enjoying the great excitement of playing together in the various orchestras and Concert Band especially in the preparation for the Camerata concert and for our two Speech Nights.  It is a very rewarding, enjoyable experience and it also develops high levels of reading, listening, concentration and alterness which can be channelled into academic performance.
If you do not play an instrument now is an ideal time to start!  Instruments are available to suit the needs of students throughout the school so please don’t hesitate to speak to me (Lynley Bramble BH 9807 8888 / AH 9803 7701 or email if you would like to discuss the availabilty or suitability of various instruments.  Instrumental tuition forms are available from me or from the School Office.  Perhaps you may like to try out some instruments during the holidays so you can start in 2009 – there are many possibilities so do come along and have a go!
