Last night our Intermediate band competed in the Victorian Schools Music Festival. The students represented our school wonderfully both with their beautiful behavior and with how respectful they were to the other schools. The band played two pieces and the adjudicator from America was extremely impressed with the standard of the group. He even asked to come to our school when he is out next year to see how we are teaching our kids in the music program.
When they read the results and we were awarded Platinum the students were very excited. The Platinum Award is very hard to get and the band scored 5/5 for nearly all of the criteria.
I am very proud to be Director of Music at St Helena and acknowledge it was a real team effort. St Helena is lucky to have such a talented dedicated team of music teachers and an amazing group of music students.
