Our year 11 drama class gained a place in the final of the mindplay competition, which was held on Thursday night at the Hunter School of Performing Arts. There were five other schools in the final, Hunter School of Performing Arts, Lambton High, Warners Bay High, Newcastle Grammar and Toronto High. It is an absolute credit to our students and to Mr McDonald that they won this competition.
Congratulations to all the students and to Mr McDonald for the hard work and organisation that went into this performance. What a brilliant result!
A huge thank you to the staff and students who supported our Lizottes concert on Monday night. We had a packed house. The sound engineer was so taken with the quality and talent on show that he recorded the entire performance. This concert was for our senior music students who were supported by Adrian Smith from year 8, a talented drummer. Adrian stepped in to help year 12, who lost their class drummer Luke Carlyon to an apprenticeship. The community support we receive for these concerts is impressive, and Lizottes tell us each time that Whitebridge tickets sell more than any other school. Congratulations to everyone involved.
The Whitebridge High School Year 11, 2015 - HSC Expo evening was a great success with many parents and students in attendance to find out about course choices available to study for the 2016 HSC. A big thank you to all the staff who were in attendance to present on the evening.
A big thank you to Mr Bright for his organisation of our Harmony Day assemblies on Tuesday. The support from all students and faculties involved makes these occasions very special, and our students are lucky to have the exposure to the many speakers and items involved.
