Yearbook 2021


2021 was a creative time as music teachers and students navigated learning while watching the new Music Centre appear. The junior classes had a mix of online learning and practical time using guitars. The generosity of the Art department in sharing their space was very much appreciated. The elective Music class took ownership of the move and were spotted on the grounds carrying all the gear for safekeeping in E Block until the building was ready. When it was time to move in, again the elective class took the reins and systematically retrieved all packed away music equipment. They then worked from the ground up, ensuring each of the three practice rooms contained drums, piano keyboards and amplification, leaving the premium equipment for the senior performance space in the extra large teaching room. In Week 3 of Term 4 all music students returned to the Music Centre and have been enjoying the bigger space. The HSC students showed resilience, patience, and an ability to approach independent study with a lot of their course delivered via video conferencing during lockdown. All current music students and of course the 2022 HSC class are the beneficiaries of a tremendous space and have been waiting keenly at the door for every class this term. While COVID restricted a big aspect of performing this year, the junior and senior academic assemblies at the end of the year had extra reason to celebrate as the students were allowed to perform. We look forward to 2022 in the new Music Centre.
