Adelaide Christmas Pageant - Senior Drum Corps and Oscar Bridges

This year’s Christmas Pageant was very different to every other year in the events history, but it was simply spectacular! I am so proud of the Senior Drum Corp and Oscar Bridges (yr 9) for their efforts in working through the challenges of rehearsals, a constantly moving target and the complicated logistics. Thanks also to Ali O’Connell for all her assistance. It was a huge effort.

Oscar simply performed at a professional level and it was fantastic to see him enjoy his opportunity on stage. Congratulations to all the other Pulteney students who were part of this magical event

Remembrance Day Service

Congratulations to the Concert Band, Grammarphones, Concert Choir and the Senior Drum Corps for their participation in the special service. It is always a moving ceremony as we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us to enjoy the freedom we enjoy every day. A special thanks to Henry Bradley for playing the Last Post. For those musicians who get the opportunity to play the Last Post, it is a special responsibility that Henry managed so well. Congratulations Henry.  

Instrumental Music Lessons in 2021

For resourcing and staffing purposes, we request that you advise the Performing Arts department of your intentions for instrumental music lessons in 2021. Please email Ali O’Connell on ali.oconnell@pulteney.sa.edu.au by Friday 27 November if your child wishes to discontinue their current instrument.

If you wish for your child to continue their instrumental tuition, or take up a new instrument in Term 1, you will need to re-enrol using the online application form by Friday 26 November.

If your child currently hires an instrument from the Performing Arts department but is discontinuing at the end of this term, you will need to return the instrument to the Performing Arts department by Friday Week 8 to avoid being charged an additional term. Students continuing in 2021 may keep their instrument for practice during the summer holidays.

If you have any queries regarding the Instrumental Music Program, please contact Ali O’Connell, Performing Arts Administrator on 8216 5526.
