BTR goes to the Bundaberg Eisteddfod!

May 09 2017

The Bundaberg Eisteddfod is an annual event held in Bundaberg. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to perform and receive feedback in regards to their performance. 

We are so proud of our students who performed in the Eisteddfod for 2017! The most amazing part is to now see the growth in the confidence of these students and where this experience will lead them to next on their musical journey.

Congratulations to Layla Hills, Jada Critchlow and Michalina Konopka for being invited to perform in the Eisteddfod Gala Concert.

Some of the students will now be sitting their AMEB Examination in a weeks time. For these students the Eisteddfod was a well timed performance practise for this examination.

Meet our students who performed and our place recipients!
