The last week of August saw 115 students head off for 3 days of music making and fun at Rutherford Park campsite in Blampied. The students were given the opportunity to learn new repertoire, explore new and different ensemble combinations and to work with all of the music staff in a relaxed and focused setting. Students enjoyed the sun with outdoor rehearsals, while also participating in fun activities to get to know each other. A highlight of the time away was definitely watching the senior students mentor and share their knowledge with the younger students, and hearing the improvement made by the younger less experienced players. A huge thanks to the staff who attended and gave their time to work with the students.
