There is only one more week left of Term 4, which is only made more exciting by it being the last week of the YEAR 2011! This year has been a long, steady year with much to reminisce on.
Looking back at Shine throughout 2011 – we have progressed enormously with our renovations expanding our school from four rooms to six, our new air conditioning unit and our 24/7 access to the toilet! We have also farewelled a few of our ‘older’ (not by age) teachers who set off to advance their lives either by marriage or career, but we have welcomed our new and extremely well-experienced teachers including a new instrument – the beautiful and enchanting Cello! Finally, we have welcomed a huge amount of new students this year, including our 4 year old violin student, Deveash, who submitted this Christmas colouring-in for our Stardom Newsletter competition!
Our students have performed at a larger range of contexts throughout this year as well, from Lexus Parramatta’s new car opening, a Red Cross Charity Event, the Yates Avenue School Fete and even the Greystanes Public School Spring Fair!
The Annual Shine Music Charity Concert was a success, as per usual, with our students of all ages getting up to perform for Westmead Children’s Hospital! Stay tuned on our Facebook page for more pictures from the concert!
