On Monday 27 July, drama, dance and music students from our Combined Centenary State Schools (CLASS) gathered together at City Hall. We were extremely privileged to be a part of this once in a lifetime event and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support from the Department of Veteran Affairs’ ANZAC Centenary Local Grants Program, our Combined Centenary State Schools (CLASS), all three levels of government, our P&C associations, local RSL branch and local community groups such as the Jindalee Lions. With such support transport, catering and provision of a shirt for each student participating in the concert was fully sponsored, with no costs incurred by parents.
Act 1 opened with an outstanding performance from Middle Park State School Dance Troupe, Centenary State High School Dancers and all choir students. This was followed by performances from CSHS drama students, vocal ensemble, ending with a moving performance from our choirs from across all 4 schools. Act 2 provided an opportunity for our instrumental music students to shine with our Senior Band and Senior String students displaying their amazing talents. The evening ended with all students coming together to sing Amazing Grace and Auld Lang Syne. The upstanding applause from the audience was a testament as to how well our students performed on the evening and the amazing talented musicians we have at Jindalee State School and across our CLASS schools. Words cannot express how proud we are of our music students who participated in this evening. They were truly amazing.
