Year 1 String Concert
Thanks to all the String Instrumental Music Staff, lead so capably by Mrs Jayasinghe and the Year 1 students for a really uplifting concert this week where they shared their learning this term with their cohort. The high level of concentration, attention to detail and self-management skills was very evident to see considering most of the boys have only been learning their instruments for this term. Some snippets have been shared onto Seesaw this week, so please check it out! Looking forward to hearing Year 2 next week at their concert.
The Percussion Ensemble is a group of 5 boys ranging from Years 2 -5 who meet on a Tuesday morning and work together intensively on a variety of concepts including stick technique, ensemble playing and improvisation. Having such a wide age range the older boys support the younger boys in their learning. Our focus is on creating a creative space where we have fun and create new music every week. Photos of Percussion Ensemble were shared in the Newsletter last week.

In considering what to write about this week, I have made a conscious decision to look…
There have been no changes since I last wrote about our plans for Week 4 and 5, but I would like to request your ongoing assistance in reinforcing to your sons the current public health messages.
I am excited to finally be welcoming students back to school over the next two weeks….
