Optiminds at the State Championships

Congratulations to our Optiminds team who travelled to Brisbane last weekend to compete in the State finals. Whilst they didn’t win, they performed very well and learnt much from the experience. The team are keen to use the experience from this year and return to the competition next year which we are looking forward to. Thanks especially to Ms Warlters-Hill for her guidance of the team.

Choral Songfest

Wow – what a wonderful opportunity for 10 students from our TAS Senior and Junior choirs. These students participated in the Choral Songfest at the Cairns Convention Centre last Friday, singing alongside the prestigious Sydney Children’s Choir, the Gondwana choirs and the sublime Vienna’s Boys’ Choir! The growth and standard of the TAS singing program continues to impress. What a terrific night. Thanks Mrs Long.
