New England Band and Vocal Camp at Lake Keepit
Six CHS students participated in this year’s New England Band and Vocal Camp at Lake Keepit. Declan Eshman (saxophone), Lachlan Eshman (trombone), Riley Fleming (saxophone), Shafin Salim (percussion) and Megan Hain (clarinet) participated in the Band Camp, and Lauralee Peters participated in the Vocal Camp.
Students arrived at Lake Keepit on Sunday 4 August and participated in band/vocal workshops until the end of the camp on Friday 9 August. The camp concluded with a concert for all the parents. Students at the band camp also had intensive tutorials with instrumental tutors. The band camp was organised by the Department of Education’s Arts Unit.
All the students had a great time and learnt a lot. The school also received a lovely email from the organisers commenting on the fact that the “students were fantastic” that they were “great representatives of their school”. A huge thank you goes to all the parents for all their support and help with transport. Congratulations to these six students!
