Term 3 Week 3
The term has commenced with its usual energy and gusto as our students embrace their academic studies and the great variety of co-curricular activities on offer. We have enjoyed a fabulous celebration of the arts with the staging of the School musical and the exhibition of our Year 12’s Textiles and Visual Arts major works.
I hope many took the opportunity to see the outstanding production of ‘High School Musical’ staged at the Orange Civic Theatre. Congratulations to the wonderful cast who clearly had put in an enormous effort to achieve such a polished, colourful and energetic production. A huge cast of over 70 students plus the back stage team and our musicians. It was fabulous to see so many involved – boys, girls, Year 7’s through to Year 11’s – and students who are also involved in a great breadth of school activities. It is a great credit to the Director, Mrs Catherine Litchfield and all the staff who were involved that such a first class production with a very young cast was achieved. It is very clear that we have many good years ahead on the musical front.
Last Friday evening the annual exhibition of our Year 12 Textile and Visual Arts major works was held. A marvellous occasion showcasing the excellence of our Senior Students whose creativity dedication and skill never cease to amaze. The quality of the projects undertaken by our Year 12’s was outstanding, reflective of their ability but also the dedication, passion and care of our staff who like the students have gone to extraordinary lengths to see that such a high quality of work is achieved. We are most fortunate to have such a committed and selfless staff.
