Middle School Arts Festival - 06 November 2015

The inaugural Middle School Arts Festival hosted international band, Tribal Voices, on Wednesday 4 November. Their performance took the Lourdes Hill students on a journey into the colour and flavour of Africa through song. Staff and students gathered in Soubirous Place at lunchtime to experience the joy of Zimbabwean music. The lead singer, Tich, played the Nyanga-Nyanga thumb piano, which is an extremely rare instrument. Tich, along with three other band members, shared original compositions demonstrating diversity and adventure.  The diversity in music brought out an intense dance groove from the students as they quickly formed a Congo line winding around Soubirous Place. Students embraced the beautiful spring weather, enjoyed the experience with their friends,  shared a picnic and ate ice cream cones.  It was a great celebration for what has been an outstanding year in the Middle school.


Also on display throughout the day was the artwork from the Year 7s. Their creation of creatures representing their identity were seen lurking in the gardens of Soubirous Place. Thank you to Ms Trish Linehan for her inspiration and support with this promotion.
Special thanks to Mr Ian Hughes and Miss Sophia Alexiadis for their professional technical support. Their expertise, hard work and time was greatly appreciated.
