From the Head of Senior School
One of the highlights of the year is the House Music which was held at Costa Hall yesterday. After weeks of rehearsal, all students had the privilege of being on stage and made the most of this opportunity.
The House Music leaders led the rehearsals and gave so much of their time to ensure the performances were of the highest standard. Congratulations to these students in:
Burrows: Toby Edwards and Mackenzie Goodson
Flynn: Tayla Robinson and Finn Baptie
Penman: Katie Loxston and Cameron Ritchie
Taylor: Meg Heathcote and Oliver Russell
The Emcees were Owen Barrett and Mackenzie Goodson and they did a superb job in introducing all the performances. Their understanding of the music and knowledge of the performances allowed a rare insight into the afternoon. This opportunity is an example of how the College encourages students to lead such important events. We should also congratulate the leadership of Fiona Gardner and her team. Fiona has provided the backdrop to ensure all students of music, not only reach their potential, but have the skills and confidence to lead others. Penman was the overall winner and their leader in Simon Peake was elated as it had been the only “trophy” he had not won previously.
As you read this the first of our Debutante Balls will commence. The second will be on Saturday evening. The Debutante Balls this year will be the biggest to date. Each night will have thirty six couples, with a Flower Girl and Paige Boy at each evening.
The Debutante Balls are the result of ten weeks of rehearsing where the students honed their dancing skills. For some this took longer than for others.
