Thursday night was an evening of celebration as our school performing arts community came together to recognise the achievements of our talented students in the fields of music, art and drama this year.
Awards were presented to over fifty students in recognition of achievement, leadership and contribution to co-curricular dance, music and drama groups, as well as those involved in Showquest and the school show. Items from each department were also very well received, with performances given by the Avondale College Quintet, Pasifika Mai dance crew, Drama Academy students, and Allegra d'Souza, who sang her show-stopping number from Fame the Musical.
Congratulations to all who received awards on the night, and particularly to our top award recipients and trophy winners!
