Pulling right strings

Isis Town and Country - - LIFE -

MORE than 90 mu­sic stu­dents from Childers schools com­peted in the Mary­bor­ough Mu­sic Eisteddfod re­cently, with out­stand­ing re­sults.

The Childers State School string or­ches­tra re­ceived first place in the pri­mary school string or­ches­tra sec­tion, and the Isis District State High School string or­ches­tra was awarded sec­ond place in the high school string sec­tion.

Con­cert bands at both schools were highly com­mended in their re­spec­tive sec­tions.

Stu­dents also per­formed in trio, duet and solo sec­tions.

Mu­sic teacher Kerryn Haasksma, along with pri­vate in­stru­men­tal teach­ers Bev and Lau­rie Han­bury and school band teacher An­drew Lit­tle, said they were proud of all the stu­dents.
