No doubt many of you have been swept up in the excitement of House Music this week. The buzz around the school has been infectious. House Music is always a highlight of our calendar and while its competitive nature means inevitable disappointments, the over-riding mood of the event has been pride and elation. Watching the Houses rehearse, I have seen wonderful leadership shown by our House Captains and their deputies. Their encouragement and inclusiveness has enhanced the sense of belonging for the younger and newer members of our school. There are some fantastic potential teachers out there! Before rehearsals have even started, the musicians in each House have dedicated hours to arranging the music to create something fresh and a little bit different for their House to perform. The depth of our pool of musical talent is quite remarkable. The talented small group musicians accompanying the choirs gave another group of girls the opportunity to shine. We heard some beautiful arrangements and performances. And a big shout out also to the girls who had a go and played an instrument they had never played before! I love their ‘give it a go’ attitude.  A favourite feature of House Music for me is seeing the girls of all year levels coming together and supporting each other. Applause for the soloists – whether they were in Year 7, 1 0 or 13 was heartfelt. Our student hosts at both the daytime competition and the evening final ran a slick and fun-filled event and the massed onstage dancing at the end brought everyone together in a celebratory mood. Finally, the sportsmanship the girls showed at the end was exceptional. An instant standing ovation for the winning House (Swainson Riddiford if you hadn’t already heard!) from those who had worked equally hard and performed with all their hearts confirmed for me how fantastic our girls are. We are tremendously proud of them.
