Iona’s Got Talent 2016

At the end of term 3, Iona primary students showcased their gifts and talents by performing to their peers, parents and friends of the community. It was an entertaining afternoon of solo and group performances that included various instrumentalists, dancers and vocalists. We were privileged to hear a father and daughter team who performed a beautiful folk ballad that melted our hearts. Our Cultural Captains with their team of year 6 leaders stage managed the event with expertise. The audience were also invited to have a few “brain breaks” which included dancing the “Marcarena” and singing “I Knew You Were Treble”! It was an terrific musical afternoon. Congratulations to all our performers. ionas-got-talent-2016-no1untitled

Honoring Past Students

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.

Celebrating Religious Life Concert 2016

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.FotorCreated FotorCreated1 FotorCreated2 FotorCreated3Ce

Iona Primary Instrumental Concerts

During the school’s “Open Night”  two instrumental concerts were held in Treacey Hall to accommodate the many students who learn instruments and who wanted to share their gifts and talents to the community.  Parents and Friends were entertained by many of our student musicians who learn a variety of instruments.  Our musicians ranged from 4 years old to 12 years old.  There were performances on piano, guitar, violin, saxophone, flute, drums, and voice.   We were delighted to hear and view a range of performances that included solo performers, duets, and small ensembles as well as band performances. Thank you to our very special and talented instrumental tutors who prepared the performers for this grand event. However, special congratulations goes to all student performers who not only demonstrated their skill and talent, but were confident on stage showing their marvellous professionalism!
