Three of our sensational singing groups have been competing in the Sunshine Coast Junior Eisteddfod this week. hree of our sensational singing groups have been competing in the Sunshine Coast Junior Eisteddfod this week.

Against some incredibly tough competition, each and every one of our singers performed outstandingly, and represented our school with pride!

Our Year 3 Groovy Gals
competed on Tuesday, and the adjudicator commented on their 'inspired and confident sound', their 'fun interactions with the conductor' and also 'how lovely to see so many enjoying their music'!

With an amazing score of 86.5, our Groovy Gals achieved a Highly Commended placing.

Our Senior Beat Boys were next to perform on Wednesday. This group included our Year 4 Boys, as well as all the Year 5 & 6 boys who are involved in our school musical! They performed 'Peter Pan Sings' and it was no surprise that the adjudicator commented on their, 'energy that inspired wonderful singing phrases'.

He also made comment about how fantastic they all looked - 'like a singing sports team' and although their score of 83 saw them just miss out on a placing, they were given a 'Special Honourable Mention' by the adjudicator. He thought it was fantastic to see so many boys working together like a team!


Last to perform was our Senior Voices - made up of our Fabbo 4s, Fantastic 5s, and Year 6 Vocal Rock. The 60-voice choir were noted for their 'spirited singing', 'strong use of dynamics' and overall 'a great performance with so many engaged voices'. The competition was incredibly fierce in this section, and although missing out on a placing, our Senior Voices received an amazingly high score of 87!


Well done to each and every one of our Coolum Voices. You represented yourselves and your school with pride!  Along with a few teary parents in the audience, you certainly gave this music teacher a serious case of goosebumps!  Bravo!   (Roz Mackay)
