The Most Fantastic, Funniest Camp Ever
By Tima Korin, Year 4 Student
I loved all the activities at the Year 4 camp but my favourites were rock climbing and canoeing. Lake Ainsworth was such a beautiful, brilliant place.

The final Showcase of the year was an enjoyable evening, showcasing the cultural talents of our Junior School students. Large and small ensembles shone on stage as too did the supporting acts of duets and solos.
A highlight this year was having all the students involved in the evening come together in song. The students enthusiastically performed the 2017 Music Count Us In piece - Shine Together. It was an emotional, powerful and very special performance as the students joined their hearts and voices as one in harmony, bringing a few tears to the audience’s eyes.
The lyrics came to life as the Pre-Prep to Year 6 students sung:
I’ve never been the kind to stand in the spotlight…But everyone is here and we all shine together…Let the music take control, find your rhythm find your soul. If you ever feel you’ve lost your spark, listen to the beat within your heart.
A great big thank you to Mrs Roberts for her wonderful accompanying skills; Mr Roberts for his stage managing and assistance; Miss Morley for technical support; our dedicated conductors and directors - Mr Pearce, Mrs Moffatt, Mr Mitchell, Mrs Little; all the Junior staff who assisted on the evening; the parents for your continued support and of course, a thank you to the dedicated students who have worked so hard to polish and prepare pieces for the event.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
