Congratulations to our talented SAC Rock Band students, who are the winners in the 2022 Rockfest National Competition’s ‘Song of the Year’ category! The song that earned them top spot is named ‘Angel’ and was written by our very own Angelica Alfaro. This is the first time the Rock Band has won in this category and they have won exciting prizes for the school, such as $500 to spend at Coleman’s Music and a microphone recording system. What a fantastic effort and a huge honour for the Rock Band, we are so happy for them!

This year’s National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant is not far away, with the parade returning to the streets of Adelaide for 2022. Many SAC students participate in the Pageant each year in a variety of ways, and this year they will be joining the celebrations to mark the 90th year of the event. To honour this anniversary, a new float, surrounded by a 90-person National Pharmacies 90th Celebration Band will lead the Pageant. Three SAC students have been accepted into this band, so keep an eye out for Sienna, Helen and Chelsea on Pageant day!

During rehearsals for the National Pharmacies 90th Celebration Band, Sienna and Helen met legendary jazz musician James Morrison, who is leading the ensemble
