Term 4 Music Concert 2018

Head over to our Facebook page to hear the MRSS junior choir singing ‘Melilisa by Walter Waia’, with choir-master Mr Metcalfe playing ukekele, at the T4 music concert:


With the Term 4 Music Concert now completed, THANK YOU to everyone who helped make the concert such a success! Music@MRSS is growing from strength to strength. Not only does it help our children learn better, it brings music into their hearts for happier, creative lives. And the whole community benefits from that.

To each person who volunteered; whether you BBQ’ed, sold a ticket, baked biscuits, cleaned up or stacked a chair – know that you helped make this happen. Special thanks to our outstanding music teachers, the stagehands and more kind, volunteer teachers who made the performances run seamlessly on stage. To our music captains for their impeccable MC roles. To our communications and P&C friends who helped with all the behind the scenes but vital stuff like insurance, purchase approvals, printing, web page loading, recruiting, food orders, first aid kits and locating money boxes. And thanks also to our school leadership team who answer our bazillion questions and demonstrate how they value music by getting in hands-on and working every step alongside with the Music Support Group.

Here’s to more magical Music@MRSS in 2019!!
