There was a wonderful turn-out from our music students for the Maitland ANZAC Day Dawn Service.
Joined by community members and ex-scholars, 26 musicians played the traditional Dawn Service hymns and bolstered the considerable community crowd with family and friends while our head prefects presented the ANZAC Day books.
Over 150 people then gathered at the Town Hall for a cooked breakfast and ANZAC presentations.
Thank you to conductor Deb Schwartz, our musicians and family members for attending. A special thank you to the families that travelled from Yorketown, Ardrossan, Minlaton and Kadina to be part of the day.
Week 9 was a busy and productive week for our key SRC Leaders. On Wednesday 26th March, Miss Sarah Atkins and I accompanied Lucy Rowe 6/7 M, Koby Polgreen 6/7KD and Lily Dyett 4/5S to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre to take part in the Primary National Young Leaders Day.

We had brilliant weather for our Maitland Show parade.
Teachers and students dressed in their finest blues (Sharks) and reds (Eagles) and walked (or rather meandered!) from Pioneer Park to the Showgrounds.
We stopped several times along the way to allow our shorter-legged students the chance to catch up and eventually lost sight of the front of the parade!
Fortunately we made the correct turn at the oval crossroad!
The Concert Band performed for the opening of the show, as did the Festival Choir. Congratulations to Deb Schwartz for the quality of both groups, especially this early in the year.
Well done to all students for their (mostly) uncomplaining walking and their enthusiasm promoting their house teams.
