Downloading Arts / PE Content

I have uploaded instructions (on Seesaw) for how to archive your content from this school year and have tagged everyone in each class. If you’d like to save your work (especially your final performances!) or if your mum or dad would like to save some cool videos, then please do so quickly. I am using a free account for Seesaw and will be deleting classes in July, and repopulating in preparation for the upcoming school year. Please see your P.E. teacher about whether you should archive for that class as well. Also, please remember that the music / drama folders on studentlargestorage will disappear this week, so please download any sheet music, production videos, etc., that you’d like to keep. Thanks.



After Wednesday’s choir performance, you might be thinking, “Hrm… I like cookies… they sing cool songs… more boys are joining… I really like cookies…”

Well guess what? Next year we are singing “My Shot” from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip hop “Hamilton,” complete with four rappers. Seriously. And Miss Keus plans on spending the summer researching the most delicious, nut-free cookies in the whole world. Seriously.

If you want to join, just show up the 2nd Friday next year. Or, email Miss Keus to get an early sneak-peak at the music.

DP Music Showcase

Our DP Music students need to perform a minimum of 20 minutes of live music per semester for their performance portfolio. They’ve played in assemblies, charity events, and the big music evening, but now it’s time for them to pick up their last remaining minutes of the year. They’ve got to show you, the audience, that they can play a variety of different music genres, with good technical skills, in the correct style of music, while communication their feelings and emotions.

Please come to M251 (the music ensemble room) to watch a short concert featuring Charlie, Jack, and Daniel.


Grade 12 Discover China trip

Class of 2018,

I’ve started receiving potential itineraries for your senior trip in May next year.
Please stop by room D204 if you’d like to offer feedback on the first ideas coming in about destinations and activities. There’s a board you can write on with a first suggestion.

Please note nothing is decided yet — not even the destination. This is just a feedback round.

Interhouse Battle of the Bands!

The music rooms are filled with the sounds of the 70s! It’s disco, baby! All three houses have brought their A games and are busy working hard. Tomorrow (Friday) is the Battle-of-the-Bands concert, so make sure you save a spot in your calendars!

Music Interhouse

After a slow start, the three houses are now busy practicing for the interhouse Battle-of-the-Bands competition during Friday lunch. We’ve got a rock band, an orchestra, and an interesting (cool) surprise. Let’s see who becomes the Kings and Queens of Disco! (and who possibly changes the course for the house shield, so late in the game!)
