It was great to see the music students and staff perform at the Music Gala that was held at the WEDGE entertainment venue in Sale this week. A range of bands performed throughout the evening, as well as the Sale College Choir.
Long standing Music teacher Claire Cochrane's tremendous contribution and integral role in building up the Music Program at Sale College over the past 30 years was acknowledged on stage by Sallyanne Barclay. Claire will be sadly missed but we wish her all the best in her retirement as she pursues further travel and when home, tends to her lovely garden. Congratulations also to all the final year music students who received awards. We wish them all every success with their music in the future.
Thanks to the Music Program staff and students who put in such a lot of hard work to make the Music Gala Evening a success.

Countries are split into Zones to give young riders, without financial ability to travel overseas, a taste of international competition. Australia is in Zone 8, alongside New Zealand, Hong Kong, Chinese Taipei and South Africa. Kaitlyn placed 3rd of 11 Australian competitors. With other countries yet to compete, the final international results will be published in January.
From Thursday onwards, Kaitlyn is competing at the Australian Dressage Championships in the CDI-J class ("Concours de Dressage International" - International Dressage Event [for Juniors]).
