    Instrumental Showcase

    Last Tuesday evening, our talented music students performed in our annual Instrumental Showcase. Our many ensembles showcased the works that they had been rehearsing all term. There were also solos, duets and bands representing students from years 7-12. Many thanks to our dedicated  Instrumental tutors who prepared our students and to the teachers who also assisted on the night.  A special thankyou to our Arts Captain, Jack Woodfine and Deputy College Captain, Heidi Bakker, for compering the evening.  

    VCE Theatre Studies Exam Preparation Day

    On Thursday the 8th of August, our VCE Theatre Studies class attended a Written and Performance Exam preparation day at GPAC. VCAA assessors presented the students with tips on how to prepare for both examinations. Our students participated in practical activities and gained an insight into how to get the best results! Many thanks to Drama Victoria for organising the day, it was incredibly enjoyable for all involved.

    Geelong Schools Movement and Music Festival

    Students from both the Junior Concert Band and the Intermediate Symphonic Winds performed at the Festival on Tuesday and all agreed, it was a resounding success! 40 musicians represented our College and played 2 pieces: ‘The Tempest’, which was conducted by our very first conducting student, Sarah Bensted, (Yr 11) and ‘Mallet Maniacs’, which featured the Glockenspiel and our brand new Marimba, played by Fin Hanley (Yr 7), Erin Robertson, (Yr 7) and Clare Sumner (Yr 9).  The event was an opportunity to perform out in the community at a world class venue and our students were fabulous! Sincere thanks to Ms Cordell and Mrs Hodge for accompanying the students on the day.

    Public Speaking Recital - 'Daring Greatly'

    Tomorrow evening, Thursday August 15th at 7pm in the college Art Gallery, our public speaking students will present their short speeches entitled 'Daring Greatly'.  

    ‘Daring Greatly’ is a topic inspired by a speech given by the American President, Theodore Roosevelt and more recently a re-created quote by author Brene Brown, who also published her latest best seller titled ‘Daring Greatly’

    Brene was inspired to write this novel after being shamed online for being openly vulnerable. Students have been challenged to think about just what ‘Daring Greatly’ is to them.

    This presentation will run for approximately an hour and will conclude with a supper. 

    Performance is an important aspect of Public Speaking, and this evening will be a wonderful opportunity for them to showcase the skills they have acquired over the year.

    Our public speaking teacher, Ms Chelsea Gibb, is looking forward to meeting parents and friends at this event.
