Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

The Mackay En­ter­tain­ment and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre played host to the Proser­pine State School choirs this week for the 67th Mackay Eisteddfod.

The highly re­spected judges awarded the year 2 choir gold for their ren­di­tions of the amus­ing My Dad Snores and har­mo­nious Blue Moon, Do You Wanna Dance? and A Wal­laby in My Gar­den.

The year 3 choir won sil­ver with their pro­duc­tion of Child Song.

The most vic­to­ri­ous were the year 4/5 choir, with its thirty-five mem­bers, which won gold as well as the Ad­ju­di­ca­tor’s Choice Tro­phy for The Copy­cat Rag and Light a Can­dle.

Proser­pine State School singing teacher El­speth Scot­ford said all choirs did a won­der­ful job and gave up their own per­sonal time to re­hearse.

“They sang very well and were great am­bas­sadors for the school and com­mu­nity,” she said.
