How It Works:

House Leaders get to choose their 70s themed House Choir Song this Thursday.

Our Music Director Dr Peddell will have 6 x packs containing 2 x song choices each.

From those two choices, Houses can only select ONE song to perform.

House Leaders then have 24 hours to teach their House that song and the dance routine, before their performance in the CEC from 2:15pm this Friday.

Points will be awarded for the best House performances AND to the House with the most students in attendance!

All points go towards the annual Canterbury House Cup.

This is one of the most enjoyable end-of-term House events on our entire school calendar – from the morning rehearsals, right up until the final on-stage performances.
