The audience was delighted in the performances – especially “Haunted House” composed by one of our students, Jude 4R, and performed by a string quintet, including Jude on the violin and Paddy 5S, also from the St John’s Campus, on the cello. We congratulate Jude on being awarded second place in the Composers in School Years R-7 section for “Haunted House” and an Honorary Mention for his composition, “Agitazione”!

Ethan will be representing South Australia in cricket at the national Under 12 Carnival held in NSW and Victoria in January 2018. This is the second year in row that Ethan has been selected for this team and this year he has also been selected as the team’s Vice Captain. Ethan has also just returned from the state primary schools competition where he and Carl 7RHO represented the Adelaide South East District team, which came first overall. Asha will be competing at high jump at the national Athletics Carnival being held in Adelaide later this year.
