Last Thursday we acknowledged and celebrated the achievements of our students in the academic, mission, sporting and cultural fields of life at MSM. Congratulations to our Academic Captains, Elora Brady and Ella Patterson who did a fabulous job as Masters of Ceremony. Elora and Ella, along with Bridget Locke and Amelia Pilbeam delivered a wonderful summary of the highlights of 2021 from a student perspective. Well done, ladies!
It was fantastic to hear the Sophia Centre filled with the sound of music during the event. Thank you to the String Orchestra, directed by Ms Alice Buckingham, who created a beautiful ambiance to open our event. The Senior Vocal Ensemble also entertained us by performing “A Clare Benediction” and “Revolution”.
We were also treated to two performances by our Arts students. The Year 12 Drama class enthralled us with their contemporary MacBeth production “Something Wicked This Way Comes”. The Year 12 students Dance class also delighted us with the stunning performance “Someone in the Crowd” choreographed by Mabelle Maynard. Congratulations and thank you to these students for enhancing the experience of MSM Celebrates by sharing your special talents with us.

There is a great deal of work that occurs behind the scenes to bring MSM Celebrates together. There are many, many staff who contributed to the success of the event. Thank you to everyone involved!
I extend my thanks to Mr Stephen Campion for his overall coordination and Ms Suellen Yung for her many hours of work which included the organization of the certificates and awards.
This year we were able to accommodate an audience as well as produce a live stream. This was possible due to the efforts of our amazing IT team (Mr Adam Watson, Mr John Hamilton, Mr Gabe Cooper, Mr Aaron Besch and Ms Kelli Dick). Thank you!
