Music from all five bands and the recorder groups filled the school with joy again this week. The students enjoyed coming together as a whole, and the amphitheatre was a peaceful and unique bush setting to rehearse in. Even the birds and bush turkeys joined in! Recorder students enjoyed learning as a group again with Mrs Moor, and it was great to see so many smiling faces.
