Arts Showcase – a stand-out performance

 

Last Thursday 1st June, our 2017 Arts Showcase was presented to the community at the Hopgood Theatre. Highlights were the wonderful dance on display from primary and secondary students, our beautiful choirs and polished band, stunning vocal soloists including Year 6 Jayden P who has confidence beyond his years and Year 7 drummer Noah M who is performing at Year 12 standard. We also saw some innovation with hip hop dancer Vipop C interacting with a robot on stage, thought provoking short films and vibrant art works on display.

We were incredibly proud of how our students and staff all worked together to put on a great show. Thank you for the feedback from our audience sharing that they “felt humbled to be a part of the experience”.
