Pilton students hit the right note

Pilton State School students were excited last week receiving a Highly Commended award at the Toowoomba Eisteddfod with their performance of Calypso Morning.

ompeting in the Small Primary Schools section of the Eisteddfod were students Rachael May, Olivia Brady, Elyse Robertson, Harriet Thorpe, James Robertson, Mac Rice and Flynn Campbell.

Music teacher Sue Nichols was also delighted with the result believing it is a reward for the school’s objectives in encouraging all students to learn a musical instrument.

Across the Clifton Cluster of schools, there were some great performances at the Toowoomba Eisteddfod.

The Clifton Cluster Combined Concert Band, including both high school and primary school students, finished in second place.

Clifton State High School had several bands and ensembles competing.

Ms Nichols said the  Concert Band delivered a good performance but did not place, the Percussion Ensemble delivered a great performance but  did not place, the Year 7 Ensemble were highly commended and the Year 8 Ensemble finished in third place.

Unfortunately, the school’s remaining ensembles were decimated by illness.  

The Flute & Clarinet ensemble combined with the Saxophone Ensemble at the last minute to perform different music.

The Trumpet Ensemble performed with only four out of six players. 

“No awards but these kids are legends!” Ms Nichols said.

“I am incredibly proud of these students for their effort, behaviour, attitude and resilience.  

“We also have an incredibly proud group of parents.”
