On 16th September the Year 5/6 Senior Choir and an ensemble of instrumentalists (violin, flute and guitar) from the primary school gathered at Corpus Christi Church Mosman Park to sing at the Mass for the Golden Girls (students who attended Iona Presentation College 50 Years Ago). It was a great honor for the primary students to sing and play at this celebration. Choristers and musicians are to be commended for their tuneful singing and playing. Year 3 students also performed a reverent liturgical dance while the Year 5/6 Choir sang “A Blessing” song.
The Junior and Senior choirs from Iona Primary performed at the Catholic Performing Arts Festival in Balcatta on August 18. They performed in a section with a selection of other choirs from the metropolitan and country areas from WA. Our students performed admirably with the Junior Choir achieving a Certificate of Merit and the Senior Choir being given an Honourable Mention Award. Congratulations choristers!
Last term the students entertained the Presentation Sisters and other Orders from the metropolitan area for a concert and afternoon tea. This event was to celebrate the Sister’s Religious Life as well as conveying thanks for the work they do in our communities. The Sisters loved the variety of performances from our primary students which included choral singing, violin, piano, saxophone, ukulele, recorder, flute, and guitar to name a few. Below are some snapshots of the afternoon for you all to enjoy. Many thanks go to the students who prepared performances as well as the music teachers who assisted in the preparation of individual and ensemble/choir performances. The afternoon tea was a great success with students intermingling with the Sisters. Also, sincere thanks to parents who provided the delicious afternoon tea and Sr Catherine for coordinating the event. Ce
