END OF YEAR SHOW

KEEP SCROLLING TO FIND THE PROGRAM

Principal's Message

We did it! We got through 2021 and are so excited we are able to showcase our students today. 

We look forward to giving our students a sense of achievement and purpose and hope our show puts a sparkle into the end of a long and challenging year.

Students and teachers pulled the show together in under 8 weeks and despite it not being polished and perfect like other years, we are proud of what we have achieved in such a small amount of time.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the sounds of Kings and Queens of Rock, Pop & Roll.

Miss G
