King's Students Attend SHEP

Performing Arts

Three of King's very talented young musicians were successfully selected to participate in SHEP (the State Honours Ensemble Program) for the Primary School category. Griffith University hosted this prestigious two-day prograam in late November and our College was honoured to have Darren Lim (Cello), Kassia Tezel (Violin) and Aya Ucharatna (Violin) attend this event. Participating in SHEP is a great honour and we congratulate the students on this achievement.

"Last year in November, I was part of a group of students who represented King’s in the State Honors Ensemble Program (SHEP), a music program for young students at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University. For two consecutive days, we had the opportunity to learn a few songs, to practise with students from different parts of Queensland and also to make new friends and great memories. On the second day, being part of the string orchestra, I performed six pieces on the big stage and I had the feeling that I should come again. I am very grateful to the school and the music teachers who nominated me into this program and I hope I will have this experience once again."
"I had a great experience participating in the two day SHEP workshop with Griffith University. I have learnt new things and met new friends. The best part was when we performed in the big hall for our parents. It was a memorable moment in my life. Thank you King’s for nominating me in the SHEP program to represent our school."
