New Concert Finale song

Last term, the students voted for the Concert Finale song and whilst we all loved the idea of singing Firework, we all agreed that it was too hard to learn to sing. So we have a new song to learn in a short amount of time.

Watching the Voice kids has been an inspiration for many. So here is the official version from The Madden Brothers – We are done.

We hope you enjoy listening to our version as our concert finale song.

Grade 3-6 Recorders

This term we will be picking up our recorders again. Recorders help students understand how to read music notation. It is also an introductory instrument that may inspire them to take up another instrument. (ABC music classes in woodwind, brass, percussion, guitar and keyboard and Cathy- violin are available at a fee at HWPS. See the office for further details and brochures).

Please ensure you have a recorder at school ready to go in week 6. If you need to purchase a recorder “Music Junction” in Camberwell has student recorders for $10. They also have a wide range of ukuleles. Just let them know you are from HWPS.
