Results from the Bundaberg Groups Eisteddfod
Recently we enjoyed a wonderful couple of days at the Groups Eisteddfod. This was a great way to connect with other schools and share our love of music. Bundaberg is certainly home to a great number of talented musicians - students and teachers.

On Monday 5 August, the Drama Club participated in Queensland Theatre's annual Scene Project. Throughout the project, students had the opportunity to work with a newly commissioned script, where they developed it into a 15 minute performance. Students presented their performance, and watched other schools from the district present theirs. They were also able to view Queensland Theatre's professional version of the script, and interacted with actors and directors throughout the day.
The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as it is a celebration of the Arts and the value of creativity. Drama Club is already looking forward to next year's project!
