Mornington Community Music Camp 2017

Last week, fourteen talented MMPS students participated in an exciting and challenging music camp which was held at The Briars. Music students from seven different primary schools on the Mornington Peninsula united to form a large ensemble and were required to learn approximately ten pieces of music in three days!

The camp concluded with a fantastic concert at Osborne Primary School, where our students showcased their skills and talents in the concert band, African drumming group, ukulele group and choir. The camp was a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn new skills and instruments and also meet new friends with a common interest.

Congratulations to all who attended the camp. They certainly did our school proud.
