Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.

– Johnny Depp

At the conclusion of another term, we celebrate the success of a normal return to music making. Congratulations to all the boys who have performed, including at the Junior School Assembly, the Gala Concert, Eisteddfods, AMEB Exams, and Studio Concerts.

We expect the highlight of Term 3 will be The Primary Arts’ Festival on 20 August. We have programmed some exciting repertoire for the ensembles which we are looking forward to sharing with our community. The Junior School Choir intends to première three new Australian works as a part of the TGS Composer Fellow Program. Save the date! 20 August 2021.

We extend a very special thanks to Parents and Caregivers for their support of son’s participation in the Junior School Cocurricular Music and Individual Lesson programmes. Whilst the benefits for your son are self-evident, it would not be possible without the special sacrifice parents and caregivers offer in encouragement, transport, and patience. Quite simply put, Thank you!
