Sixteen Students Selected for Middle School SHEP

Reedy Creek

King’s students have been very successful this year in gaining selection to various State Honours Ensemble Programs (SHEP), which are run throughout the academic school year. SHEP is an excellent opportunity for students to develop their performance skills in a supportive, yet challenging environment, and make new friends from schools across southeast Queensland. Over the July school holidays, King's had 16 students selected to attend the SHEP Middle School event at Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University where they enjoyed over six days of rehearsals and performances. Congratulations to all of the students who attended these concerts - we are very proud of your dedication and hard work. 

Michelle Huang shared about her SHEP experience:

"Attending SHEP was an amazing experience for me. Through those 3 days,I learnt new techniques, I gained more experience in working in orchestras and fortunately, I found students who are interested in my hobbies and we were able to form a friendship between us. The challenge that appeared to me was Perseverance. After approximately 13hrs playing, my mind was on “auto-pilot”, my hands were exhausted, however, I overcame the challenge, and the performance was wonderful! "
