Success at the Cowra Eisteddfod

MacKillop had great success at the Cowra Eisteddfod for both choir and instrument ensembles in Weeks 13 and 14.

On Friday 13 May, students from PCoPA (our Performing Arts PC) competed in the Choir section of the Cowra Eisteddfod. The group won First Prize for the School Vocal Choir section, with adjudicator Sarah Marshall awarding the group a score of 98 out of 100. Feedback from the performance was overwhelmingly positive with the choir being invited back to perform at the final concert. A fantastic achievement by our students! 

A special mention also goes to Jett Blyton (Year 10) who competed in some solo competitions. Jett won 1st place in five different categories and also received a 2nd place and highly commended for two other categories. Amazing job!

On Wednesday 18 May, 73 students took 73 musical instruments (including percussion!) to Cowra to perform in the Eisteddfod. The ensembles participating were the Senior Wind Ensemble, St Peter's String Ensemble, Padua String Ensemble, and Padua Concert Band. The Padua Concert Band won First Prize in the Secondary School Concert Band and the St Peter’s Strings won the Open Small Ensemble category. 

The College thanks and congratulates staff members Veronica Boulton, Henry South, Danielle Logue, and pre-service teacher Chris West for leading and accompanying the students. 

Congratulations to all involved in these performances!
