Boys Achievements

Thomas Prior (Year 12, Stuart) has been named in the Australian U20 Water Polo Squad to tour USA June 24 - July 4 this year.

Mac Hanlin (Year 12, Stuart) is travelling to Adelaide on Sunday to represent WA in the National Schools Debating Championship.

Stuart McCowan (Year 12, Ferguson) was successful in auditioning for a limited place in Jazz Workshop and Masterclass course to be held in America at the Brubeck Institute - University of the Pacific in early August. The Brubeck Summer Jazz Colony is a one-week, intensive educational program in jazz performance for a very limited number of exceptionally talented students. They come from throughout the United States and beyond to study with Brubeck Institute faculty, guest artists and master teachers, in combo rehearsals, master classes and private instruction, classes in jazz theory and advanced jazz improvisation, and seminars on the music of Dave Brubeck and other topics. Colonists have extensive opportunities to visit with the artists and clinicians, participate in numerous jam sessions, and perform in concert. A fantastic opportunity for Stuart, and we look forward to learning all about his experience when he returns.
