The School Principal, Mr David Manning, commented; “The success of the Chamber Choir in first getting through to the semi-final and then to come away in the runners-up position, of such a prestigious national competition, has thrilled our entire school community. We are very proud of the extremely high standard of music at all levels in Strathearn and of the enjoyment it brings to so many people. This recognition beyond the school is a fantastic achievement for the pupils and also their teachers, Ms Kimber the Head of Music and the conductor Mrs McIvor. They have all worked extremely hard to achieve this standard and we are delighted for them.”
