What a Year!
2019 has been a fantastically busy year in performing arts at Ringwood Secondary College and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Starting with our amazing World Tour, we sent 30 students and 5 staff members who performed 19 times in 7 countries. Our performing arts students were wonderful ambassadors for the school and their country. The students were able to build their inter-cultural capabilities, resilience, and performance skills whilst being accepted into the school communities and families in which they performed.
Back at home 16 orchestra and vocal groups rehearsed to produce the quality music that is so beloved by the college community and culminated in our fabulous Music Gala .
In September 130 students toured the Daylesford area and inspired regional Victorian students with our annual Band Tour.
As usual, the PAC also held classes, dance club, instrumental music lessons and of course Tuesday night rehearsals for production!
Speaking of production, this year we delved into the silly world of Monty Python’s with SPAMALOT. This show put our students through their paces and forced everyone involved to look on the bright side of life!
We had 11 nominations at the Youth Lyrebird Awards and Tayla Burr took home the award for Outstanding Dancer - Congratulations!
Niamh Mebalds also performed at the Awards ceremony.
19 has been a fantastically busy year in Performing Arts at Ringwood
The Ringwood Secondary College Junior Production of Aladdin Jr has been a massive team effort! We are particularly grateful for the assistance of the year 10 - 12 students who have given up their own time to assist and mentor their younger peers. Whether it be in auditions, tech, make-up, choreography or vocal assistance, the additional expertise has been highly valued. This year the team of student helpers has been amazing with almost all of the choreography being created and taught by students.
Once again Extra pArts have been amazing at this busy time of year. Led by the amazing Karen Carden and Denise Rash, the team have banded together and created and coordinated so many costumes in record time. We are so grateful for the support of so many parents and guardians.
Please see the photos on the following page after another great show takes its place in Ringwood's history - a special thank you to Gary Smith from TR8 Photography and Fiona Cooke for all the wonderful shots that were taken
