It has been the busiest time of year for the Performing Arts department in recent weeks, Kicking off with the first instrumental music night. Students, accompanied by their instrumental teachers took to the stage to display the excellent work they have been putting together so far this year. The event was headlined by our Junior and Senior scholarship group bands, and for many performers it was their first time on stage.
Following that, our school pop-rock-funk senior band took to the stage during Rockfest, the annual regional battle of the bands hosted at our school.
Our group "The Common Boys" won best band in the region and will go on to the national finals in August. Our bass player, John Lazongas also took individual honours for best bass player on the day.
This week we will be showcasing the semesters work of our Year 9 Art, Performing Arts, Media and Technology students with our Create Festival.
The Create Festival was held on Wednesday evening (07/06) and was a great example of the work completed in our Year 9 elective program during the semester. Many of the students have performed or promoted their work in front of a large audience for the first time. There was some fine musical, dance and drama acts during the evening.
The foyer was also packed with great examples of art and technology work created during the semester.
We appreciate the time the teacher and students have put into organising the event. An enthusiastic audience came out of the auditorium buzzing. Cranbourne Secondary College is a great community to be part of.
