As always in our iconic “Concord style”, the annual House Arts competition 2015 allowed teams of “Concordians” transform collective brainpower into reality, each from one of our four Houses: Mandela, Teresa, Pankhurst and Gandhi. This year the four categories were the house song, house dance, house poetry and house ensemble.
It was such a great success with outstanding performances throughout the three-hour event. This should have proven a great challenge for our judges Mr Kerslake, Mr Wilson and Mrs Coward to decide giving the trophy to Teresa House, the overall champion. Effort and excellence in each category were also appreciated as Mandela won the house poem, Teresa won the house ensemble, a draw between Pankhurst and Teresa in house dance and a draw in house song between Mandela and Gandhi.
Audience including teachers, staff, house parents, visitors and students enjoyed themselves at the event. Despite the tight schedule of just two weeks (this is unbelievable) to create all performances from scratch and to go through rehearsals, all the Houses achieved higher standards than we ever expected. The strong participation of students in House Arts this year will set yet another benchmark for next year’s competitors.
