This term the D7 class have been practising tirelessly on their ukuleles and singing in order to participate in a concert for the residents of Cooinda. Students performed several songs on their ukuleles and sang a range of Christmas songs and old time favourites. Students were well received by the audience and staff at Cooinda.
Dedicated Music teacher, Nancy Doolan, accompanied students along with SLSO Vanessa Houley and Narelle Pfieffer, who drove the bus.
The students are now known as ‘The Rising Stars’. Not only have they performed at Cooinda, but they have also participated in a show case concert at the High School in Term 3. Students have shown great enthusiasm and will continue to learn new songs in the New Year.
See below some video highlights of their performance! Read more »
