Term 4 is always the time for endings and new beginnings.

This is very much the case in Music at OLMC. Our VCE students undertake a yearly performance where they are able to celebrate their achievements and share their talent with many in the community.

Our VCE music classes performed for family and friends on Monday 10 October in an intimate and joyful VCE Performance Evening which celebrated an almost end to our Year 12 students’ music journey as they prepare for exams. It was also an opportunity for Year 11 students to perform in a positive environment and be inspired by the dedication of our current Year 12 students as they become the inspiration for coming students. You may have also seen our dedicated VCE students playing an important part in the Mercy Day Arts Extravaganza, St Francis Art Show, Graduation Mass and Assembly.

On behalf of all the classroom and instrumental music staff we would like to thank all our Year 12 students for their dedication to the OLMC music program from Year 7. Your adaptability throughout online learning and willingness to look at new ways to do things in the last year have been inspirational. You have displayed a special bond on numerous occasions this year and we are sure that you have made some important friends you will have for life. We hope that leaving OLMC does not mean that your musical journey stops, rather we hope it is a skill you can use throughout your lives to bring you joy. For those students going on to study music at a tertiary institution, good luck and we hope ‘all your dreams come true’.
