Congratulations to all our fine singers who attended the Waverley Eisteddfod on Monday 24 August at Robert Blackwood Hall, Monash University. It was quite an adventure taking three choirs of 138 girls from Years 3 to 6 to such an occasion. There were ‘butterfly’ tummies and much excitement in anticipation of performing in such a big venue for so many different schools. Our girls looked very professional and sang beautifully. Mini Mads received First Place with 98 points, Bumblebee Choir Year 4 came Second Place with 95 points and Bumblebee Choir Year 3 received an Honourable Mention with 87 points. The adjudicator Mrs Jenny Mathers commented on their ’divine tone’, and ‘excellent diction, dynamics and style’. The breadth and depth of learning that takes place in preparing, performing and reflecting on the Eisteddfod continues to provide an excellent learning opportunity for our girls. Thank you to all the parents and special friends that came along to support us.
