Principal Neil Randall said the successes for the outstanding senior choir and senior band were well deserved.
“It was a just result for all the collective work and commitment from (conductors)Elizabeth Patterson and Thomas Melton and our talented students,” he said.
Birkdale State School’s music teacher Helen Deagon said attributed the school’s success to theintroduction of a music excellence program, which included choral development, in2014.
She said students worked weekly on developing techniques in breathing, tone, pitch, diction and harmony.
“This, in turn, allows the school’s choral repertoire to include more diverse and complex works,” she said.
