Meeka Ireland, Lily Amos, Riley Fox and Bernie Morgan were all accepted in the Young Conservatorium of Music ensembles program for 2017. It is a nerve racking process as each of them had to audition for a place in the ensembles. They will rehearse with awesome ensembles and conductors every week next year.
Also, Meeka Ireland, Laura Hall, Maya Harding, Brooke Maltby and Katie Lane all did their A.M.E.B. exams and each of them received an excellent result. Well done and congratulations to all and especially to Mrs Anderson who organisesd and inspireds the students to achieve their best and strive to be a better musician.
Drama Club On Monday 21 November, thirteen drama students performed Snapshots from Home for the residents at Regis Aged Care Facility. Many of the songs performed by the cast were from the days of WWII and were familiar to the residents, so we had quite a sing-a-long. The young performers had a great time learning the words and melodies of the songs. It was wonderful to be part of such a meaningful and valuable project. Many of the residents congratulated the group and they were invited to perform again next year. Well done, everyone.
Instrumental Music ProgramThe IMPS Committee, students and their families had the annual Christmas break-up party on Thursday 17 November. It was great night with lots of musical families coming along to celebrate a very busy year well done and to send-off the Year 12 students. A special thanks to Marie-Louise Craig who finished as secretary for the IMPS Committee this year. We truly value her contribution to the Instrumental Music program at Wynnum SHS. Junior ShowcaseYears 7, 8, and 9 Creative Arts and Technology students presented their work at Junior Showcase. Thanks to all the families and friends who came along to support their child. It was a terrific night and the students really excelled in the work they presented.
Senior ShowcaseYears 10, 11 and 12 Music, Dance and Drama students presented Senior Showcase for family and friends. It was a fabulous night of entertainment with many students presenting outstanding work. It was also a night tinged with a little sadness as this was the final performances for our Year 12 Creative Arts students. Well done to everyone involved. We can’t wait for the Junior and Senior Showcases next year.
