Night of the Stars

Once again Wynberg Girls’ High musicians were invited to perform at the Night of the Stars – an event described by Boys’ High as the School’s biggest fund raising and marketing exercise of the year.  As is usually the case,  it took the form of a six-hour, non-stop festival of music, food and fun. This year a new “Big Screen TV” and “chill zone” for the enjoyment of all was introduced. The screen was 9m x 5m and the biggest outdoor screen in Africa. The regular Motor Show was back but by far the biggest drawcard are the live performances. We were immensely proud of our new junior Marimba Bands – who launched the performances – and our Jazz Band. If anyone is wanting a party started, the Wynberg Girls’ High Jazz Band is the grouping to invite. The sheer delight of this grouping is hugely contagious, and within minutes, had the crowds dancing.

It was a delightful evening from start to finish, and an event which makes us proud to be the sister school of Boys’ High.
