At the beginning of 2014, the Jazz Band appealed to the school for support of them in the High School Band Slam competition at the V&A Waterfront. The school was absolutely marvellous in their response, and, based on Wynberg spirit and support, we were awarded the Spirit Prize – the Coca-Cola gig rig – in the competition.

 

To enjoy the benefits of this prize, a sunset concert has been organised on 4 December. We hope that the event will mark the end of an excellent academic year and a celebration of great music. It will be held at Wynberg Boys’ High on the Hawthornden Field at 17:30-20:00. Friends, families and learners at Wynberg Girls’ and Boys’ High Schools are invited to bring a picnic as they’re entertained by a number of musicians including our own Jazz Bands. Guest performers include Anecnote and Matthew O’Connell.

The school was delighted to have Matthew perform one of his songs in our assembly on 10 November, as, once again, we appealed to the school to help us sell tickets for this event so that our music department can continue to develop. For every ticket sold, girls will receive a house point, raising their chances of being the winning house in Term 4 of 2014. But perhaps more importantly, the school will be making an invaluable contribution to the growth of our the music department.
