It has been another wonderful term in the Performing Arts Department. Every Tuesday lunchtime, we were all lucky enough to enjoy our lunch whilst listening to various musical numbers, performed by our talented students.

Performing Arts Captains, Jenny Song and Ryan Hamilton, with Director of Theatre Arts, Mrs Katrina Fisher, and Director of Music, Mrs Sue Roberts

“Tuesday Tunesday” music in The Ray Building Dining Room during lunchtimes has continued to be a success thanks to the following performers:

  • Georgina Powell
  • Yeva Brereton, Ella Kirk, Paris Torti
  • Madeline Hayden-Smith, Bill Carrett
  • Vivi Baker
  • Ziggy Enoch
  • Noah Jay
  • Grace Curly
  • Madeline Strickland

During the first weekend back of Term Two, members of the musical attended the annual musical camp at PCYC Bornhoffen. It was yet another wonderful weekend full of dancing, singing, and of course, taco eating!

Towards the end of the term, Franklin House hosted the annual talent show, “Purple Faces”. It was without a doubt a night of talent, humour, and some very creative adjudicating!

On the final day of this semester, students gathered in The Great Hall to participate in House Activities Day. After decorating thrones, choreographing dances, and painting macaroni, the SingStar competition was held! For students from Years 7 to 12, along with the Heads of House, the SingStar competition showcased our wonderful voices, once again.

Now, there's a multitude of events coming up this term. Continuing as usual is Music in The Ray on Tuesdays. Anyone interested in performing is encouraged to email

The "high school" musical, High School Musical, performs at the end of Week 3. Tickets go on sale at the end of Week 1 and all are encouraged to come along to a show that will be exactly what you've been looking for.

Shortly after the Musical concludes, casts from Somerset will perform in the Junior, Intermediate and Senior sections of the Gold Coast Secondary Schools’ Drama Festival. More details about the performances will come out closer to the date.

The Somerset Festival for Young Performers occurs shortly after that, and is a weekend of performances from the College and larger community's plethora of talented youth.

Somerset will also be entering many of its Choirs, Bands and Ensembles in the Eisteddfod, which occurs throughout this term.

All considered, this term is sure to be a cracker and we have a lot to look forward to!
