As we near the end of Term 2 I reflect on all the wonderful achievements of our students throughout this term. From Generations in Jazz, to the Music Soirée, to Primary Arts Night and most recently Catholic School’s Music Festival Auditions. It has been a term filled with success and enthusiasm amongst our students.
