On Wednesday the 14th and Thursday 15th of November our wonderful instrumental students were a part of the CCEN Area Band Tour that played at most of the schools in the district. Congratulations to our wonderful Atwell musicians that were involved; Talesha Burns, Alyssa Skelton, James Wu, Jessica Booth, Micah Lou. Our guitar students Josh Whale, Charlie Linn and Michael Ellis played guitar but also picked up the percussion parts, demonstrating their musical talent and versatility. Congratulations to Mrs Betty Young the conductor extraordinaire and all students involved.
The Artnet Expo at Atwell College was once again, a great success this year. The annual event, in partnership with Atwell Primary School, Aubin Grove PS, Beeliar PS, Hammond Park PS, Harmony PS, Jandakot PS, Success PS and Fremantle Language Centre experienced a huge turnout of students and their families.
This year’s ArtNet Expo was given the theme of ‘Art Now,’ focusing on the work of contemporary artists, sustainability, technology and much more. Take a look at the spectacular art produced by our students at Atwell Primary School!
On the 6th of September I went to hear the Atwell Band ably led by our brass teacher Betty Young at Churchlands Concert Hall, as part of the ABODA Band Festival held on the weekend of the 8th and 9th of September. The band is made up of instrumental students from the CCEN network. The students played three pieces magnificently then one of the adjudicators workshopped the band.
We are so very lucky to have such dedicated and talented teachers working in our instrumental program. Our Atwell students were well represented and really worked brilliantly as part of the band.
Congratulations to all students for their hard work over the year and a big thank you to the parents and families who support them.
