Week 4 Assembly Performances
Congratulations to our Band, Choir and pianists who performed so beautifully at last week’s assembly. Mrs Williams’ pianists were well prepared and confident in their performances and showcased a great range of repertoire available to the piano. Our Band performed for the first time with some Blues which included solos from Adam Hoang on keys, Abigail Leeks and Alyssa Zimmermann on vocals and Julian Pugliese on drumkit. Our beautiful Choir performed a wonderful arrangement of This Little Light of Mine with solos from Ruby Anderson, Matilda Mackie and Addison Bidwell.
