St Francis United Church recently hosted St Francis College’s first musical event for the local community – and the kids were a hit!

Colleen Mutch invited nine music students to perform for the audience, which proved to be a valuable exercise in confidence-building ahead of their year-end international music exams.

College music teacher Natasha Brown said live performance was a key component of becoming more comfortable with one’s skills and that her pupils played very well.

After the ‘show’, the young musicians were treated to refreshments, cakes and lovely thank-you gifts.

Music teacher Natasha Brown encouraged this experience for her pupils as confidence building for the year end exams giving them the opportunity to show their talents.
