Grade 4 have been waiting for this moment and today it finally came! Lots of excitement and buzz as students were told what instruments they will be playing in Grade 5 band next year. Can’t believe it has already been a year since Grade 5 was in this position. It was great seeing them be mentors for their younger peers.
On Monday and Tuesday, students and teachers were treated to a fun 2 days of workshops and singalongs with visiting musician Kathryn Claire. Thank you Mrs Harrington for organizing this wonderful experience for us all!
The Montessori & Elementary Christmas Concert last week was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who helped to make it possible. Can’t believe how close we are to Christmas and the end of another year!
Finally, the day has come! Hope you can join us for our Montessori/Elementary Christmas Concert at 6pm tonight! Our students have been working hard to prepare for today. It’s going to be a wonderful evening!
Snapshots from the ES Spring Concert in May 2016. Both the matinee and evening shows were a great success (well done children!). Students performed well and best of all, many told me afterwards that they were proud of themselves for trying their best and had a lot of fun! Thank you to the music team and all ES staff for helping on the day, and to Mr Torii and Mr Haigh for the beautiful photos.
Over the last 2 weeks, Grade 4 students had their instrument fittings which involved them filling in a questionnaire and trying different instruments in preparation for Grade 5 band next year. Last Friday was the big day when instrument assignments were announced. There was a lot of excitement in the air (and some nerves) and students couldn’t wait to hear what they will be learning and playing next year.
Grade 5 students did a great job showing their younger peers their respective instruments, answering a lot of their questions, and teaching them things such as how to hold the instrument, how sound is produced, what they like about their instrument, fun facts, etc.
