Eight of our music students, Benji, Alistair, Sam, Susannah, Ollie, Ardian, Nick, James were selected to play in the Division 1 Superband at the prestigious Generations in Jazz Festival held in Mt Gambier recently.

Division 1 is the highest division and students selected to play in the Superband are selected on the basis of their outstanding performances – they are the best of the best. It is an amazing achievement to have 8 students from one school selected to play in this band. Their selection is a testament to the quality of the music education program and the quality of the music staff.

Our students were selected from the  4700 student musicians from 125 schools from around Australia who competed at the prestigious Festival.

305 stage bands and vocal ensembles played over 800 pieces of music.

“Every year it just gets better and better, and this year was just incredible,” declared James Morrison, Australian Jazz icon and Generations in Jazz  chairman and artistic director.

Given the quality of the competition this year  we are very proud of our students’ achievements.
