Friends of Music Jazz Night 2021
Save the Date for the 2021 Friends of Music Jazz Night. This year we have a Winter Wonderland theme, and it will held on Friday 27 August.
2021 House Singing
After months of planning and House Captain led rehearsals, our annual House House Singing Festival returned to the CM Wood Centre on the 26 May.
With the set song being the Grease favourite, “You’re The One That I Want”, each house performed this plus a song of choice.
Somner Stewart set the bar high with their version of “Love Shack”, Gordon Grant matched the high standard with “Shut Up and Dance” and then Dann Watt delivered the entertaining “Ghostbusters”. Mansfield McKie had us very much believing their dreams could come true with “You Make My Dreams Come True” and Butterss Cross brought it all home with the catchy and spirit lifting “Hooked On a Feeling”.
While the judges retired to contemplate their verdict, the CM Wood Centre swayed and rocked as every Year 7-12 student joined in with the traditional House Singing karaoke, featuring classics such as “Uptown Girl”, “YMCA” and “Dancing Queen”.
Butterss Cross won overall competition, while Gordon Grant runners up.
More importantly, every student had enthusiastically supported their House, and provided one of the best House events; their passion, energy and sense of fun was inspiring!
The Smoothie Bar
Recently our Year 8 students took part in the Smoothie Bar program. The program helps to develop their understanding of what is required to create and build a business, including research into a particular product, financial analysis, marketing and pitching their product to an audience. The event was wonderfully attended by parents and friends, creating a fantastic atmosphere for each group to pitch their product to potential investors. A huge congratulations to all teams for their efforts over the two days!

Laura and Oliver laid our School wreath under the Ringwood Clocktower as all in attendance paid their respects on this national day of remembrance.
