A huge congratulations to all students involved in the 2017 Albury Wodonga Eisteddfod. Their musicianship was outstanding, their conduct exemplary, and they really were wonderful ambassadors for our College. A big thank you also to the very talented Music staff who were involved – Lauren Schmutter for her exceptional work with the vocalists, Lisa Cadman for her excellent piano accompaniment, and Keith Miles for his tireless work setting up the PAs for the Rock Bands, not to mention his bus driving skills! The College music students that participated in this year’s eisteddfod achieved outstanding results.
