Whilst usually musicians and swimmers might be seen to be mutually exclusive populations, CCPS has managed to raise and to acquire some outstanding swimming musicians. Perhaps I am thinking of Handel’s Water Music! Our swimming Age Champion for Year 10 was Nava McDonald, and he will be performing for us soon on piano at a School Assembly. Nava studies at The Conservatorium of Music in their prestigious Rising Stars program at South Bank, amongst his many accomplishments. His younger sister Veda McDonald (Yr 7) studies Ballet in Brisbane, and is a noteworthy violinist awarded High Distinctions in AMEB grade 3 violin, and in grade 2 Music Theory. Sophie La Selva (Yr 10) who was a very strong performer at our Swimming Carnival, played piano with “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” infused into “Flight of the Bumblebee”, at our Leadership Assembly on Tuesday. Sophie is an outstanding academic leader, and it was a delight to hear her play. Tim Aitken (Yr 11) has joined us, and who with his younger brother Sam, recently won the Southbank Valentines Day Busking Crown, with over 200 Artists competing. Tim is an exciting singer and musician and we look forward to hearing from him soon. Hannah Stuart (Yr 9) is another academic leader and she is also studying ‘Voice’ at The Conservatorium; whilst her sister Alexandra Stuart (Yr 11) is a House Captain, leading swimmer and surf lifesaver. Tyra Stowers (Yr 10), Paris Burlock (Yr 5), Alex Innes (Yr 11) and Jess Hoskins (Yr 11) who was recovering from a stress-fractured foot, were wonderful to watch in the pool, as leading representative sportspeople in our community.
