Last month, Tin Can Bay State School entered their Concert Band into the Gympie Eisteddfod. This performance gave our students the opportunity to showcase the results of their hard work and continued efforts. Our Concert Band performed very well, while performing some technically challenging repertoire.
Tin Can Bay’s Concert band was awarded Second Place (out of eight competitors), a very impressive outcome! In addition to our award, we also received a great deal of praise from audience members who sought me out to offer commendations on our outstanding performance.
Our instrumental music program got a boost thanks to Tin Can Bay IGA who donated $350 through the Community Chest Program to purchase new instruments for our Instrumental Music students. The Community Chest Program supports various local community groups, it’s IGA’s way of supporting the community – the more custom they get, the more support they give back.
Students were super excited with a surprise visit from Anthony and Cassie from Woolworths Cooloola Cove, who dropped off three big boxes of delicious apples, oranges and bananas for students to enjoy at lunch time and at fruit break.
In sport, many awesome events have happened already in term three. I would like to recognise some talented students who have excelled in athletics. Firstly, to Matthew Doran who broke the 12 year boys 1500m race at our school athletics carnival in week two. He ran 6:09.00 minutes stealing the record from a student in 2003.
Madison Yates also broke a record in the 9 years girls shot put throwing 4.36m, beating the record by just 2cm. Tim Brigden also broke a record from 2003 in the 16 years boys 100m with a time of 12.30 seconds. Well done students!
Reminder, the 20 year Back to Bay will be held October 13 – don’t miss it!
