Do You Know the Relationship between Arts and Minds?

There is a distinctive link between high levels of music training and the ability to manipulate information in both working and long-term memory, substantial improvement in numeracy and geometric skills, and more highly developed skills in reading and sequence learning.

Soloists Competition

This week Heats of the Soloists Competition were held at the Preparatory School and congratulations to the following students who will be performing at the Finals Concert next Wednesday night in the Orchestra Room. Well done to the twenty-six Preparatory School students who entered which was a record contribution.  Thanks to Mr Kinda for his accompaniment for the string students as well as the Adjudicators – Dr McGregor, Ms Morgan, Mr Kinda, Mr Rocco and Mrs Campbell.

Trinity Singers

This week Trinity Singers returned to relative normality with the rehearsal schedule. Thanks to all Trinity Singers who have attended rehearsals thus far this term. Today we recorded for the remote Family Service with Chapel Band and thanks to Ms Smeulders, Mrs Swanton, Mr Smith, Mr Dangoor and the camera operators for your assistance.

After School Music Co-Curricular Pick-up

Following after school Music Co-curricular rehearsals it would be appreciated if students can be collected at the Llandilo Gates no later than ten minutes past the rehearsal finishing time. If boys are still waiting, they will be directed to the OSHC to be supervised as staff are not expected to remain behind to wait for boys to be collected. Please ensure your son is registered with OSHC.
