South Fremantle Senior High School said goodbye to the Graduating Class of 2014 on Tuesday 28th October. We were happy to host this event in the Music Centre Auditorium, especially as we were able to feature our only year 12 student in 2014: Sophie Fuller. Sophie sang two songs and the National Anthem accompanied by former student Marcus Freind and current student Troy Higson. All three received many complements on their performances, including from Margaret Collins, Regional Executive Director, South Metropolitan Education Region, who commented "Just beautiful, a truly moving performance!".
The first of two events we performed at for the 2014 Fremantle Festival, our bands opened Norfolk Lanes Youth Festival held at the Youth Plaza on Fremantle Esplanade. Festival organiser Bruna Chiovitti was very impressed, saying " Wow! What a high standard of musicianship and professionalism."
On Monday 20th September Freddy Poncin joined us again. In 2013 Freddy lead African Drumming Workshops as part of Tiyende, a cross curriculum African Culture project. This time he came to give our year 8s a clinic on Reggae Drumming, demonstrating some of the main styles used and helping year 8 drummers Lachlan Kent and Sam Stewart-Bras to get to grip with the intricacies.
