Welcome back everyone to an exciting and busy Term Two. Hopefully all had a restful, yet enjoyable holiday. It is quite amazing how quickly all settle back into the term.

Over the Easter holiday break, the Performing Arts Theatre has seen an exciting change take place. The theatre seating has been completely refurbished with a new set of plush, comfortable theatre chairs. We encourage you to come across and have a look!

Rehearsals, Somerset Actors Studio and Tech Crew

This is just a quick reminder to all students regarding rehearsals and meetings. As this term is a little fractured with public holidays and various examinations, students need to keep in mind their responsibilities regarding rehearsals and meetings. Notification of times and any changes are placed on Schoolbox, with each day clearly marked, which can be viewed on the various DVC screens around the College as well as being posted on the notice boards in the Performing Arts Centre. Students must ensure that they access this information through the various means available. If students are uncertain of times, please contact the staff member through the appropriate email channels.

Any queries can also be passed through to Mrs Sue Roberts for music matters and Mrs Katrina Fisher for drama matters.

Upcoming Events

This coming weekend, our High School Musical cast is heading off to Natural Arch for their annual camp. We look forward to hearing about their progress next week.


The Senior Musical this year requires a lot of the cast to have lab coats. If any members of the College Community have a lab coat or two hanging in a cupboard collecting dust, we will happily find them a new home. It does not matter what state of repair they are in. Any donations can be dropped to Mrs Roberts office in the PA.

Past Performances

On the last Thursday of Term One, the Show Choir performed in their usual spot as the pre-Grandparents’ and Special Friends' Day entertainment. The group always looks forward to this performance each year as it always brings back pleasant memories of their time in the Junior School with this event. Well done to all!

Over the holiday break, two dedicated and talented performing arts students, Lily Thompson, Year 9 Franklin and Candice Taylor, Year 9 Starkey, sang and danced their way through Hairspray - The Big Fat Arena Spectacular with Harvest Rain Theatre Company at the Brisbane Convention Centre. This was a record breaking performance; the largest production of Hairspray ever staged in the world. Performing alongside stars such as Christine Anu and Rob Mills, this was an exceptional opportunity for Lily and Candice who gained a memorable experience from their involvement in this show. Congratulations girls!
