The Toowoomba Instrumental Eisteddfod at the Empire Theatre complex has just concluded. Now we have the Speech and Drama sections to complete over the next week.
Glennie entered nearly every individual and ensemble section this year, with 361 entries and 268 girls involved from Junior, Middle and Senior Years. The youngest of our entrants participated for the first time, bringing on an anticipated mix of nervous excitement! This is the largest number of participants that Glennie has ever entered into the Toowoomba Eisteddfod.
Glennie girls have gained 112 places out of 260 instrumental entries, producing the best results ever for Glennie! Glennie also won the secondary schools aggregate trophy for the best two results out of the three sections of Orchestra, Big Band and Concert Band. Junior ensembles too, produced some excellent placings.
A very successful week and an outstanding effort from everyone - staff and girls. Take a bow!
Mr Steve Warren
Head of Junior Years
