I am pleased to report that The Jazz Band gained a bronze award for their performance at the KBB Bands Festival on Friday 10 August. Local schools who also received a bronze award for their Jazz Band include Howick College, Pakuranga College, Macleans College and St Kentigern College, so we are in plenty of good East Auckland company. Our band were also nominated for the Peter Goddard memorial award: this award is be presented to an ensemble whose performance, presentation or behaviour embodies the values that educationalist Peter Goddard held. It’s the musical equivalent of a good sportsmanship recognition.
Congratulations you can be justifiably proud of your efforts.
