SHTEPI House – MaD Week

Shtepi House Make a Difference Week, run by the House Leaders, aimed to raise awareness about world literacy, equality in education for all and to celebrate the love of books and reading. Our House Charity ‘Room to Read’ who support and promote children’s literacy in Asia and Africa, will use the money we raised to continue to create local language reading materials, teacher training and girls’ education programs throughout the world.

Thank you to all of the students, parents and our whole school family for the generous donations. This year we collected $10,432.90

Year 7 Music

During our zoom lessons, students learnt about musical elements through composition and listening activities. Rori Town created a beautiful piece with pre-recorded loops in GarageBand. This piece demonstrates original thought with a clear musical structure.

Year 8 Music

Year 8 students have spent the last few weeks creating their own music compositions, using the software MuseScore. Compositions have been based on two different tonalities, major and minor, which create contrasting moods. Congratulations to Ian Park who successfully received full marks for his composition, titled ‘Rainfall’.
