Newton Park Pre-Primary Concert
The year started at top speed for the Music Department this year. First, we are very happy to welcome two new staff members – Ms. Uithaler (Piano) and Mr. Ray (Piano). We hope that they will be very happy here and we look forward to many new and exciting musical ventures.
Our very first performance of the year occurred a mere eight school days after the start of the school year. Newton Park Pre-Primary invited the Senior Band to perform at their 60th Birthday Celebrations on 25 January 2020. The Band, consisting only of Grade 6 and 7 musicians, played for an hour in the grounds of the school. In addition, Mr. Koopman invited ex-Hurdians, who had been at Newton Park Pre-Primary, to join the performance. We were proud to include Cody Coombe-Davis, Nathan McCallum, Jordan Jenneker, Caitlyn Blouw, Arden Harris and Ms. Uithaler (ex-Hurdian!). Our thanks to them and Ms. Fowlds and Mr. Ray for joining the children in making the performance most enjoyable.
