We’re not just intellectual robots. We are a complex fusion of mind, body and emotion. Besides English and mathematics, there are two other fields that you should keep up as long as you can, even if you don’t do them as formal subjects. These are music, the language of the emotions, and sport, the language of the body. Music and sport complete us as human beings, and like English and mathematics they are incredibly difficult to pick up later in life”

― Australia’s Chief Scientist, Dr Alan Finkel

At the recent Junior School assembly, we were entertained by the Allegro Concert Band, who played Mission Impossible with positivity and great passion. Harry H (6Ta) introduced Mr Mályusz who talked about the challenge of playing in a 5 meter. The audience was enraptured by hearing some favourite music from the movie of the same name.

Congratulations to the following boys who performed in the recent Brass Studio Concert.

Tim B (6Ta) play Fanfare for the common man by Copland in the High School Brass Ensemble
