It was wonderful to spend the day on Friday in Emerald watching our verse speaking groups complete against other schools in the Central Highlands at the Emerald Eisteddfod. Our 3 groups all performed admirably on the day, doing us proud and coming away with a place.
Their months of hard work and commitment paid off as they took to the stage as confident performers. A big thank you to Ms Goodwin who co-ordinates and drives this program in our school. I must say she was very pleased to be bringing home the Intermediate trophy once again, to take pride of place in our trophy cabinet, after a couple of years absence.
Our Junior Group performed "The Bullfrog Song" and "My Favourite Things" beautifully and even with a little mishap in the middle of the first piece they redeemed themselves to take home a Highly Commended placing. Congratulations Juniors and thank you to Miss Beere and Mrs Mohr for coaching this group.
Our Intermediate Group performed "Supply Teacher" and "The Arm Pit of Doom" with much expression and were champions in this section taking home 1st place and the trophy. Congratulations team and to Ms Goodwin and Mrs Keene for coaching this group.
And finally, our Senior Group performed 'Monster in the Garden" and "I Was Late For School" with much professionalism and took home 2nd place in this section. Well done Seniors and thank you to Miss Smith and Mrs Archibald for accompanying and coaching this group.
It was also great to see our only solo entrant, Alex Otto also get 2nd place in her section. Well done, Alex.
