Parent Teacher Interviews well attended

A very large number of parent and students took the opportunity to meet with staff at last week’s Reporting Meetings. Parent feedback was most positive and almost all parents and students took the opportunity to plan for success. If you were not able to attend or were not able to see all the teachers that you wanted to see, please ring those teachers at the school and make an appointment for either a phone interview or for a meeting.

Student Parliament

Gilchrist Clendinnen, Simone Frugail, Brydie Taylor and Vanessa George represented the school recently at the Student Parliament and successfully debated many issues in the Legislative Council.

The students enjoyed the experience and handled the pressure situation of parliamentary debate without any fuss.

RUmad-STUDENT ACTION - AQUABOX

Student project progress report by William Bateman

Thank you so much for your contributions to the AQUABOX project - the raffle raised $60, and the winner of the framed print is green ticket B13

 

I would like Eltham High School to be the first of many schools to buy and fill an Aquabox to send to an area of need.

 

In 2001 Aquaboxes were sent to Nepal with a team of dentists so that they could perform surgery with clean water.

In 2002, boxes were sent to East Timor.

In 2003 The Rotary Club of Eltham sent 192 boxes to Iraq.

This year a medical team took a box to Cambodia, 25 boxes were sent to Papua New Guinea, 48 boxes went to Nuie after the cyclone. 50 boxes will be going to Chad, and 14 went to Dhaka, where they will be distributed to provide nearly 500.000 litres of safe drinking water.

 

Disasters happen. How can we help?

It would be great if all schools could buy and fill one Aquabox!

Many boxes are needed. A box cost $100.00. So I still need your help!

If every one could give 50 cents we can send a box from Eltham High to a family in need. Your donation counts - it will save lives and you will know where your help is received.

 

To fill a box we need a plastic bucket [so people can fill the box] and personal items like toothbrushes and soap, plastic cups and bowls, baby bottles, things that are handy in emergencies; torches [with batteries please], rope and scissors.

 

If you like to help, see someone of the Aquabox Team [Gabriel Thelen, James Knight or me] or Nikki Gemmill, or just put donations in the Big Blue AQUABOX near the office!!!

 

Hoping Eltham High School will get a box together soon,

with many thanks, Will 7B

MUSICAL NOTES

South Street 2004

The Royal South Street Eisteddfod has been one of Australia’s most prestigious competitions for over 100 years.  Held in Her Majesty’s Theatre in Ballarat, the Eisteddfod provides competition in many disciplines.  Eltham High School has been a regular participant in the music sections since 1987, with our Symphonic and Stage Bands being our only representatives in those early years.  This year we have had over 200 students competing.

Senior students, Robert Clark, Lane Schlotterlein, Rebecca Norman and Ilona Day competed in the VCE Solo sections with Robert placed 2nd in the Brass section and Ilona awarded an Honourable Mention in the Woodwind section.  All students played well and gained valuable experience in preparation for their final recitals in October.

 

On Wednesday the Percussion Ensemble, Clarinet Choir and Jazz Combo competed in various ensemble sections.  Although not placed, the Percussion Ensemble (directed by Ben Smart) were thrilled with their performance and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  Both our Clarinet Choir (Megan George) and Jazz Combo (Eugene Ball) were stand out ensembles in their respective sections with both being awarded 1st place.

 

It was an early start on Thursday morning for members of the Jazz Band (Eugene Ball) as they headed to Ballarat for the Junior Stage Band Section.  The band has made excellent progress this year and we were thrilled when they gained 2nd place.  A fantastic effort.  In their section, our Intermediate Band (Sally Davis) gave their best performance for the year and were thrilled when the adjudicators announced them as the winners.  The evening saw our Flute Ensemble (Julie Danaher) and Saxophone Ensemble (Sally Davis) competing inn a very high standard section with the Flutes performing superbly in gaining 2nd place.

Friday was a “quiet day” with the Concert Band (Megan George) our representatives in the Intermediate Band Section.  Competing against 16 other bands many of them senior bands, the adjudicators were suitably impressed with the ensemble skills of the band awarding the band 1st place, a fantastic effort!

Saturday saw our senior ensembles, the Stage (Eugene Ball) and Symphonic (Ken Waterworth) Bands competing in sections which involve many of the finest bands in the State.  With both bands having so many Year 12 students, their performances at South Street were a culmination of 6 years involvement in the music program.  To hear the Stage Band’s performance was a very special moment.  To see and hear the enthusiasm of the band will long be remembered.  It was a performance which saw the band awarded equal 1st place gaining a score of 99!  The Symphonic Band has long been recognised as the benchmark for wind band performance at South Street and once again produced a performance which continues to justify this recognition.  Awarded 1st place, the band produced a stunning performance.

Congratulations to all our students who competed.  Performances like these don’t just happen.  It takes hours and hours of rehearsal and an extremely high level of commitment from students and teachers alike.  The standard of performance produced by our students was second to none.  It’s something of which we should all be extremely proud.  Thank you to all staff and parents who have made the sacrifices necessary to provide our students with the opportunity of competing at these competitions.  I trust we will all strive to support the music program in every way possible as it continues to be a wonderful flagship for Eltham High School.

We look forward to hearing the results of our Choir and VCE Ensemble as they compete this week

Ken Waterworth, Director of Music

 

A Celebration of Music – Thurs 16th September

If you haven’t had the opportunity to hear our fantastic students then this concert is your chance!  The concert will take place at the Yarra Valley Anglican School, Kalinda Road, Ringwood commencing at 7:30pm.  A reserved ticket plan is being used for this concert so be early to get tour tickets from the Music office.  Adults $15 Concession $10 Family $45

 

Auditions

Auditions for the new bands will take place next week.  Music for the auditions is now available.  All students who are continuing in 2005 are required to present for an audition

Intention Forms 2005

Students should have brought home forms regarding their intention for next year.  It is important that these forms are returned by Friday 17th September so that appropriate arrangements can be made for employment of instrumental staff in 2005.
