SHC Factor Semi-finals
After four amazing heats of the SHC Factor competition in Term 2, we now move into the Semi-final stage, which will be held in Week 4 of Term 3. We congratulate all competitors for putting themselves forward to face the always packed, and sometimes rowdy, Debourg Centre auditorium. Each heat was well led by Arts Captain, Alex Cruz, and the special guest judges were always impressed.
The line-up for the Semi-finals:
Semi Final #2: Thursday 17 August
Stay tuned for who will make the finals!
Children's Library Session
The SHC Music students led the children in some well-known nursery rhymes as a warm up. Special shout out to College Captain, Luke Wormald, who, on his 18th birthday, did a great rendition of "I'm a Little Tea Pot!"
Seeing the children playing some instruments for the first time and their excitement in making the noise while interacting with our music students was a real joy. This will be something we hope to do every year alongside the library.
Catholic School's Music Festival audition
For the auditions, the Stage Band, Concert Choir and Senior Vocal Ensemble all played some of the repertoire from the year. Plus a special group of Year 12 Ensemble Performance students, Justin Kascak, Chris Manariotis and Joel Taylor, played one of their assessment pieces. Well done to all ensembles and we will wait and see what happens with the Festival, which is held on 19-20 September.
