Arts Workshop Weekend (Issue 3 2016)

Written on the 10 March 2016

As soon as the senior students finished their sports day on a beautifully hot summer's day, the performing arts students were preparing for an intensive rehearsal weekend on 4-6 March at the College.

With a variety of music groups along with the Stage 2 Dance & Drama classes the Performing Arts Centre was buzzing all weekend as students prepared the repertoire and pieces they will use for performances and assessments throughout the year.

The group of 70 plus students rehearsed all weekend whilst still having some time to relax together and play some good old retreat games (Can anyone remember who won the Knights/Cavemen game??).

On Saturday afternoon we came together for a liturgy where we reflected on the amazing gifts we have been given and how we plan to use them. It was a special time to come together.

We also saw some performance debuts on Saturday night's in-house concert combined with some veterans of the Debourg Centre; it was a great night of celebrating our shared love of music and The Arts.

Sunday morning the students presented all the weekends work with a public performance for all of the parents and friends in the auditorium. It was a great concert to a nearly packed house and an excellent way to show publicly the fruits of the weekend.

The Arts faculty and instrumental staff involved on the weekend were:

  • Dan Ryan (Stage Band)
  • Bianca Pittman (Jazz Ensemble)
  • Louise Durrans (Stage 2 Dance)
  • Robyn Page (Stage 2 Drama)
  • Kelvin Maynes (Concert Choir)
  • Neil Christopher (Guitar Band)
  • Paul Lewis (Drum Line)
  • Gail Radford (Everything behind the scenes)

Special thanks to all of the staff as well as the 2016 Arts Captains, Dani Rosa and James Killian, who worked well together to pull off another amazingly successful Arts Workshop Weekend.

Stay tuned to for a variety of performances throughout the year.
